Mrs Ebtsam Chakoch
Born on 1 June 1959 in Hamah. Moved in 1974 to Latakia, Alhaffa in Syria until 2012 then to Turkey after the revolution.
Being a soldier's daughter gave me the opportunity to move with my father and family to many Syrian provinces, acquainting me with different cultures, attitudes and behaviours, as well as giving me the chance to read many books. Later on, I worked in the Department of Citizenship and Population for twenty years, as a teacher and also in a magazine.
