Hello, my name is Maria Hasan, I’m a singer and songwriter from Syria. I lived in Lebanon for the past 9 years, and I had to leave because of the economic crises. I applied for refugee status in France, and still waiting for my interview to decide my refugee status. During this time I have a music project and I want to gather a band and start working and meeting musicians in France. Since I didn’t get my residency yet I can’t apply for a job, so that’s why I’m doing this fundraiser to be able to have money and work on my music until my papers are ready. Thank you in advance for giving me your time to read my story and support my journey in this new country.
