Shima was displaced from her hometown, Raqqa, when ISIS occupied it, and headed to Amouda, where she had to start over and work to support herself and her family. She found a vacancy to work in a sweet shop, and although this is not a socially-accepted work for women, she did it and encouraged other women to do as well. #Liberated_T
