Shuana: Caught Between Family and Dreams

DAGESTAN: Shuana’s father passed away when she was just a few months old, so her older sister had to step in and help her mom raise her.

Both mom & sister were always there for her, she said, adding that growing up with one parent nonetheless ’strongly impacts’ a child.

Shuana, who works part-time with children as an animator while finishing two university degrees, wants to travel for personal and professional development.

However, the 20 year-old feels she can’t leave her mom and sister, who have done so much for her. Her mother would like her to get married and have children.

Shuana describes her predicament as being in an open cage that she can’t fly out of.
