Get to Know about the creative producer:
“Taking on my family’s responsibilities at a really early age has giving me the motivation to strive and maintain my independence.”
Maysaa was one of the best students in her school. She dreamt to have a BA in management one day, but sadly she couldn’t! After finishing high school, as the youngest daughter she had to stay home so she could take care of her sick parents and other nine family members.
Despite many challenging obstacles, giving up was never a choice for Maysaa, and she worked hard to improve her talent in making Palestinian embroidery. Six years later she was able to pay for a Business Management diploma and fashion design courses!
She then found the Yadaiha team, and now Maysaa is able to start her own fashion shop, something she always dreamed of doing, and is able to pay for her parents’ treatment and siblings’ life needs.
