Inhabitants of the boarding school expressed their satisfaction with the conditions created for them here. Leyla Aliyeva listened to the inhabitants with amusement, as they talked about their lives, and inquired about their problems.
Boarding house inhabitants’ playing music instruments was one of the most interesting moments of this event.

Another unforgettable moment of the meeting with the boarding house inhabitants was Zamina Jabrailova’s reading her verses to Leyla Aliyeva.
Saying that she would come to see them again, Leyla Aliyeva wished the inhabitants sound health and successes.
