It's a tough time for teens across the globe.
They're not merely caving to the tough times and outright tragedies they face, however.
A group of nearly thirty female students in Kabul, Afghanistan, lost many of their classmates in a terror attack in May 2021.
Just a few months later, they lost their access to education, period, when the Taliban regained control of their country.
But eight activists have helped these surviving, strong teens continue their studies — albeit secretly.
They've formed an underground book club, in which the women continue to learn and read and even to write their own stories.
You can learn more about these brave Afghan teens and their mentors in Al-Jazeera.
