Kurdish girl at her candle-making factory

There is nothing I love more than seeing young Kurdish girls achieve great things in their life. My friend Huda followed her passion and her dream, she is such an inspiration and a role model to others as well. She holds a masters in politics and international relations, juggles a full time job and is a rising entrepreneur.

I put together a little video in her cosy home, filled with love and inspiration. We took this footage after she arrived from work (I got to her house before her). On her kitchen table the first  handmade, hand poured Kuridstan-inpired candles are made….

You can follow Lala Candles and contact Huda here and here.

You can also come and see Huda, her work, and even purchase a candle at Winter Wonderland this weekend (details below) in The Grill.
