When Enana al-Assaf was bombed during an exam, she made herself carry on writing. Now doing a PhD in the UK, she worries every day about her family in Syria
Enana al-Assaf was just five minutes into a pharmacy exam at Aleppo University when a bomb exploded next door. The then 22-year-old student says she’d heard the deafening noise of a military plane before the bomb hit. Then the building shook, glass smashed down on top of her, and screams and shouts erupted from the floors above.
