Hala Al-Santaly

Embroidery Artisan, Alsama Studio

I love the studio, I feel valued, and I feel my own presence.

Hala was born in 1997 in Idlib, Syria. She arrived in the Bourj el-Barajneh camp in 2016. Hala is married with one child. She never used to leave the house. Now she loves coming to the studio. It is a place where she feels warmth and support. At the same time, she appreciates that earning her own income gives her status in the community. She now dreams of continuing her education and going to university to study English Literature.
