When I was in high school, a classmate brought his acoustic guitar and left it in class for anyone to use. My musically inclined friends were picking up the guitar and playing riffs from familiar songs. This captured my imagination and I spent every spare moment trying to learn how to play. Guitar playing might have been one of the most important skills I learned in school.
Meream Pacayra is doing just that. Every day, she gets to do what she loves. We don’t want to simply say she is into arts and crafts. That would be understating the value of her work. She’s doing much more than that. She is making the world a more beautiful place; one carved stamp, one colorful piece of thread, one screen print and one lovingly handmade piece at a time.
