My research is based in Pakistan and focuses on L1 Sindhi-speaking young people from rural and economically weak backgrounds, from the province of Sindh. My participants include those who have been struggling through their lives and have not quit their struggle despite circumstances against them. The paper discusses dominant factors in the lives of my participants that helped them continue their struggle against all odds. Adopting the case study approach, the main method of data collection is the life story interview. The paper brings forward the effect of participants’ lives on their decisions which affect their choice and personal judgment. Strength to struggle is the over-arching theme, which gives rise to three other themes: sacrifice and suffering, struggling to be important and fighting for your own rights. The paper aims to discuss these themes in detail.
