“My name is Maryam. I was born and educated in Iran. I studied graphic arts and worked as a professional tailor.
In 2018 I migrated to Australia.I arrived in Sydney. I lived in Sydney for a short time. I wanted to continue working as a tailor, but without English that was not possible. I decided to move to Melbourne to search for opportunities to study .
I have been living in Melbourne for two years. I study English at the Box Hill institute. My English classes are very interesting. In the meantime I have started a small business making dolls.
I find my doll craft very calming, it helps me to focus, it helps reduce my anxiety and depression. It is like doing meditation.
A couple of months ago I was invited to a meet at Sisterworks where I was encouraged to join them.
I enjoy meeting the women and seeing how successful they have become, during their time with Sisterworks.
Hopefully I will be able to sell my dolls and enjoy being part of SisterWorks for some time”.
