When we decided to fund-raise, I was six months pregnant. When Majed and I were raising our series A round, one investor asked us during our pitch if we planned on having kids.
I didn’t have built-in connections to rely on if we needed more capital.
My mother gave me a nurturing environment to dream and experiment, never letting my gender limit my options. I knew staying in Jordan wouldn’t allow me the opportunity to grow in the way I wanted.
