Boushra

Head of Embroidery

I'm excited to be looking after 100 women. It's a huge responsibility at my age.

Boushra is Head of Embroidery and Social Media Officer at Shatila Studio.

Boushra comes from Darya. Some of the most intense fighting occurred in this region. She lost many friends and her house was destroyed in an air-raid. Nevertheless she found life in Shatila difficult. The narrowness of the allies and and the lack of greenery came as a shock. In addition, despite her certificate from engineering school, no one was prepared to give her relevant work. She became an embroiderer in the Shatila Studio in 2014 and after three years became a supervisor. She now manages 100 embroidery women. In the evenings she studies business at the American University of Beirut.
