The little inventor
From the time she was a little girl in East Jerusalem, Amani Amani Abu Tair showed no interest in dolls or toys like other children.
“I didn’t care about Barbies,” says the 25-year-old student and engineer. “I wanted to open the radio, I wanted to open the TV.”
When she was 9, she wanted a scooter so she decided to build her own with wood she collected and two wheels: “Everyone was calling me the little inventor.”
