My name is Feirouz, I am 21 years old from Safouri Palestine, I live in Burj al Shamali refugee camp in South Lebanon. I am married with 3 kids who are still in school.
I learned embroidery with the Tatreez project here in the center, it attracted me first because it is our tradition and it feels good to play a role in spreading it in the world even if it is a small part, it makes me feel like I am an artist.

 

On the other hand tatreez is offering a financial support that I needed while living here in the camp and I met new people that I call now friends, we come and we socialize while working on the products and we learn more.

I barely find any free time but when I do I like to cook it is one of my hobbies.

Tatreez  makes me feel like I am an artist.
