My name is Sharifeh. I was born in Afghanistan. When I was six years old I migrated to Iran with my family because Afghanistan was at war and not a safe place to live. I went to school in Iran for seven years. I learnt embroidery, crocheting and knitting and cooking from my mother and did courses in flower arranging and tailoring.

A few years later the Iranian government told us we could not live there anymore so we were moved to a UN camp for three years until we got refugee status and moved to Australia in 2013.
