Taken by Hannah Trott as part of the ‘Localities’ Project.
This is Zahra, she is originally from Tehran, Iran, but has been living in Cardiff for 9 years. She originally started attending FAN meetings to learn English and to find out about the culture she’d moved into. But, she has also found a safe environment to just be herself in, to share stories and is proud she has friends she can rely on.
"It’s not about religion, it’s not about their culture, it’s not about where you come from. It’s about friendship."
This is just one of the portraits and stories included in my project, highlighting the unique individual and how they’ve found a community with the help of FAN charity.
