My name is Najah Kamal al-Fares, I am 54 years old Palestinian woman, I live with my husband and 5 kids in Ein el Helwe refugee camp, but originally I am from Zeeb in Palestine. My kids work in many different domains like accounting, construction, training, one girl stays at home with me. One of my main hobbies is embroidery, that’s why I picked it as a career, my sister introduced me to it when I was little and it’s been with me ever since, it’s a type of meditation, opens a window away from your troubles and when I am working on it I forget everything else!

Tatreez made me expand, I feel like I can grow with all the support it is offering. Somehow it made me feel important and I have a place to go to work and practice my skills with all these new friends I made. I hope one day I will be able to be independent and have my own showroom and designs.
