My name is Chan M. Khan, I am from the northern part of The Gambia called Nuimi in a village called Medina Serign Mass. I am currently living in 107 Kairaba Avenue, The Gambia West Africa. I am a widow with a family of five. I attended Latrikunda secondary school and stoped at form four (4) due to financial reasons, I could not make it to high school or university. It was very hard for me but I was very talented and very skillful. At the very young age of Eight (8) I began to help my grandmother sewing hand made embroidery, bed sheets and curtains. I was blessed with skills especially with her hands. By the time I reached form one, I was earning some little money to pay for my schools fees and those of my sisters and brothers. At a very young age I have a dream that I want to be successful in life. I wanted to inspired the young generation as well as contributing towards nation building. Determination, Hard work and Dedication brought me to where I am today as one of the best Fashion Designers in The Gambia. After leaving school and entered the business of Fashion and Tailoring, people started to acknowledge my work. It was then that I met my Late Husband who help me a lot in my Business Career. He help me to train young girls for free by helping in buying Machines, Paying for lunch ( meal), Transportation and many other things He contribute a lot to my success.
