'We can't leave our country - we have to stay'

Hadeel Deiry, a high school student living in Mezzeh East, Damascus, is currently taking her science baccalaureate. She wants to go to university to study to be an engineer.

She says the sadness of the conflict around her means life is difficult - especially as many of her friends have moved away. But she is determined to stay in her home country, for better or worse.
