my son » his future

A story from Stateless in Jordan

My eldest, Ali, is always thinking about citizenship and nationality because nationality means rights. And so he worries about the future. ?What is going to happen to my future if I stay as I am now without citizenship, without a national number?? He has a very scientific mind and does very well in high school. He wants to go to university, but as a non-Jordanian I cannot afford it. Fees are many times higher as a ?foreigner? and we are not able to get scholarships. Ali is ambitious, but also doesn?t want to be a burden on his family. (story by Hasan al-Rantisi)
