Meet Team Knotty: Tayebeh

September 22, 2017


Tayebeh was born in Iran, but moved to Turkey with her family when she was 21 in search of a better life. She found Turkey to be a very beautiful place, and found its people very helpful and kind. In Turkey, Taybeh started working for a company sewing curtains and quickly picked up the skill. Her native language is Farsi, but languages come naturally to Tayebeh - it took her only 3 months to learn Turkish! Tayebeh moved to America in 2015 with her family: her mom, dad, sister, and two brothers. Upon arriving in America she took a food safety class at The University of Denver in order to learn English - because of this she knows all sorts of strange English words involving food-borne illnesses. The African Community Center helped Tayebeh find a job at Knotty Tie using her extensive knowledge of sewing. She likes working at Knotty Tie because everyone is kind and teaches her new skills. Tayebeh has big plans for the coming year - she has started attending a local community college and is working to become a graphic designer. She has a knack for picking things up quickly and is excelling in her classes. Tayebeh has never before lived in a country where dogs were treated as pets, and she looks forward to becoming a pet owner!
