Meet Rasul, who hails from Marawi City, and has been in Manila for only three months. Together with his brother, he is studying Arabic and pursuing his dream to be a teacher. "Grade 7 na ako rito sa Madrasa. Wala ang Ustadz (Teacher) sa mga kinder dito kaya ako muna ang ginawang substitute. Pangalawang araw ko nang nagbabantay sa kanila. Noong una kinakabahan ako, pero ngayon nawawala na ang kaba. Makukulit kasi ang mga bata. Pangarap kong maging guro. Kapag nakatapos ako ng pag-aaral gusto kong maging totoong Ustadz."
