A great model of the striving, struggling and intelligent Iraqi mother. She is a mother of three, the youngest being the departed extraordinary artist, Jannat.
Jannat was burdened with semi-paralysis, meaning she couldn't move at all, except for a single foot. Along with her mother's support, love, and skill-developing from her mother, she got past the hurdles, the young artist has put forth gorgeous paintings, spreading her story, her story of overcoming disability, and most importantly, her message of hope.
