Meet Team Knotty: Hibo

September 07, 2015

 

Hibo

Growing up in Somalia in the midst of continuous conflict and danger was not easy for Hibo, the eldest in a large family. “There was no peace, never any peace at home,” she says. “I love my country, but it is also very difficult to live there.” Bravely accepting the opportunity to take asylum in America, and leaving her family in Somalia behind, Hibo takes on each new day here with grace and positivity. Having always dreamt of becoming a designer and seamstress, Hibo is grateful for her job at Knotty Tie Co. where she has learned to sew, the first step, in what we’re sure will be a successful career for this feisty 22 year old. “At Knotty Tie, I find peace. And a place with freedom to learn, to laugh, and to grow where you want to,” Hibo says. She is also learning English and hopes to attend college one day to pursue her dream of becoming a designer. “I want to try and learn each new thing. It is always hard at first, but then after practice, it becomes easy.” Wise advice for us all!
