Afghan farmer Jahantab Ahmadi sits on the ground, her baby resting in her lap, as she focuses on the university entrance exam.
The powerful photo, taken by a professor at Nasir Khusraw private university in Afghanistan, has gone viral after striking a chord in a country where most women are illiterate and treated as second-class citizens.
"I don't want to be deprived of my studies," said Ahmadi. "I want to work outside the house. I want to become a doctor, someone who serves women in my community or society."
An online GoFundMe campaign launched by the Afghan Youth Association to help pay for her university fees has so far raised more than $14,000.
Ahmadi's story has resonated with social media users across the country, who have praised her determination to be educated.
"You are a true world champion, you have shown that a Hazara girl can do anything in any conditions or circumstances," Hussein Akbari wrote on Facebook.
Another user posted: "I hope this hard-working woman reaches her goals."
