Ruqayya is a 15-year-old young lady who lives with her family in South Manchester.

Her mother worked part-time but due to the pandemic she has been made redundant. This has put a lot of stress on the family because this was their only source of income. Ruqayya’s family are her main motivation in school, she wants to succeed, make her family happy and take them out of financial difficulty they’re currently suffering in. Her new smartphone will help her with accessing her schoolwork online as well as allowing her to stay better connected with friends. 

Ruqayya says, 

“my new phone will help me with my everyday social life, I’m especially looking forward to speaking with my friends via Facetime which I have never done before”
