Rahima alias Kushi is a Rohingya refugee, in Bangladesh. Having been born and brought up in a refugee camp, Rahima's aim is to be the most educated woman Rohingya. A full 19 years, Rahima fought against odds to go to school, which is taboo in her community. Her father wanted her to get married, but her mother is her pillar of support. She graduated and is now working on a thesis. Rahima has also supplemented her family's income by working as a translator for aid groups and journalists.
