Summary
Kamila Sidiqi's life changed overnight when the Taliban seized control of Kabul. Kamila had a teaching degree - a rare achievement for an Afghan woman - but was banned from school and confined to her home. When her father and brother were forced to flee, Kamila became the sole breadwinner for her five siblings. Armed only with grit and determination, she picked up a needle and thread and created a thriving business. Here is the incredible true story of this unlikely entrepreneur who mobilized her community under the Tailban. (Bestseller)
