Some of the siblings have also achieved higher degrees in later years. Taqwa told The Palestine Chronicle that she intends to further her education as well. Taqwa received her certificate in a ceremony that was attended by her parents and her whole family.

The Palestine Chronicle congratulates Taqwa and wishes her, her siblings and all Palestinian graduates a great future.
