This apron captures the story of Maisa, who achieved the highest high school grades in Jordan. For a Jordanian citizen, this would award them a free scholarship for university, but because Maisa, as a resident of the Gaza refugee camp in Jerash, has no national ID number, she was not entitled to qualify. Obliged to pay very expensive international fees, she couldn’t afford to pursue her studies so she remained in the camp and gave up on her dreams. In response to Maisa’s story, this multi-functional and semi-professional apron has been designed with the fabric used for Jordanian school uniforms. It reflects on the fact that while the students in the Gaza camp focus very much on their education, their future career options are limited.
