Hello, my name is Tahani. I am 18 years old and from Syria. We are 15 members in the family nad we all live together in the same house. I have a dream to become a hair dresser, and I hope I get the chance to accomplish my dream.

The best accomplishment I achieved next to my sister Amani, is that Art of Hoping taught us how to weave macrame, from [the money we earn] we help our mom with house expenses. Now we teach other women how to do the crafts, and we are happy as they are learning fast.

The hardest thing about my life is that my dad has been lost for 9 years and I still know nothing about him.

And I am happy because when [customers] see the work they become happy themselves.
