"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"

"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician."  - Source

YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. 

WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?

musli

She graduated in 2013 at the age of 20, and she graduated high school at 12. As far as I can tell, she was offered a spot at the Weill-Cornell Medical College in Qatar at 13 and began there as a pre-med student at 14 in 2007, as noted above. Here’s a 2013 article from The National in Abu Dhabi in English, and here’s another from Al Jazeera written in Arabic. Her entry on the Arabic Wikipedia has several links in the references section. CNN blog entry on her from 2010, in which she is quoted talking about her education thus far. (Though I think that same post can be found on other sites, like The National. It seems a lot of these articles are repeated among the various news outlets, but that’s neither here nor there.) It notes that she intended to take a gap year, which I assume she did, and that at that time she was poised to graduate by 2014. Here is a news entry in English from Weill-Cornell in 2007 mentioning Iqbar as the college’s youngest student. It mentions that she was sponsored by Mozah Bint Nasser Al-Missned.

Her name also seems to be alternatively romanized as Iqbal al Assaad or Iqbal el Assaad, but I know nothing about romanizing Arabic names.

I’ve got not enough money to cover all my bills and still live. I’m asking for help to pay off this one bill, so I don’t need to try and come up with the 257 bucks a month they’re demanding.

I only make 600 dollars a month, and they just canceled our food stamps. I already pay 400+ just in bills. and then the rest goes to medicine, gas, food. I need to pay off this 1400 bill, so I can focus on helping keep my family taken care of, and not the huge payment that is being demanded.

If you can’t help, I’d really appreciate if you could at least share this. Thanks so much!

I now have paypal too if you’d prefer! I really need help, please. Just send an ask!
