In 2021, Bishara graduated from Southeastern University in the United States.

She was among the 276 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram fighters in the first mass student abduction witnessed in Chibok on April 14, 2014.

She managed to escape captivity by jumping off the truck while they were being carted away.

Commenting on her ordeal, Bishara recalled how — in a few seconds — she had to decide if she was going to die from an accident or at the hands of the insurgents.

“I remember thinking about what my mum would do at that moment then I prayed,” she said.

“I just remembered a voice in my head saying ‘jump out’. I knew I was going to die either way. I chose to die, and that was how I jumped out.”
