Posted text: “Blindness has not constituted an obstacle to her excellence this year and her joining the English language studies at Bir Zeit University. Amira Abu Arqoub sat today in the chair of [PA] Minister [of Education Sabri Saidam], who had the honor of meeting her during the matriculation exams when the ministry put the talking computer to use for the first time in the exams. Abu Arqoub told me today [Jan. 26, 2017] about the colors of the flag and felt the map of the homeland with her fingers in order to laughingly and tenaciously sketch the contours of free Palestine. Long live the power of will.”
