Another great success story thanks to Chanel

Another great success story thanks to CHANEL.
However it really all came together thanks to a few people doing their part to help.
Janine Bensouda introduced me to Mihaela Nina at Capital Club Dubai where I attended a few times, and did a talk about my work.
I met Christine Boissarie through this, who has helped in many ways, but especially in this case mentioning my work to Réda Achaïchia at Chanel.
The amazing Reda, soon had 2 of our girls Aklima and Shima, working as interns at Chanel, this was such an amazing experience for them and Aklima is now at University in Portugal doing her Chemical Engineering degree and Shima was later able to bring her brother to Dubai to find work, using the money she saved.
Now, during a recent #Hackathon event, where some incredible energetic teams from Chanel, worked on solutions for social projects, Chanel announced that they want to have another 5 interns for 5 months (No.5 being Chanel's favourite number).
Of course they moved quickly and next week the 5 new interns start work.
This is such an amazing opportunity for these butterflies, thank you so much Chanel and everybody else who helped to make it happen - every little bit helps and each step can lead to great things.
