"I was 15 when I got pregnant. I didn't think much about school. Life wasn't difficult then. But because of what happened, I lost the support of my family. I also wasn't able to finish school.
Everything's different now that I have two children. I have to think about how I can be a good role model to them. When I found out Teacher Rheane was looking for high-school dropouts for an alternative learning program, I immediately grabbed the opportunity to study again. This is my chance to turn things around. And it won't stop here. I want to take up culinary arts after I finish high-school." Marian, 23, was able to come back to school thanks to an alternative learning program by Plan International and Dubai Cares.
