Marei is no stranger to failure but has overcome the fallacies of starting a business in order to follow her dreams. Marei had persevered from her hardships and committed to creating her business, even when she had no money.
Shahira Marei’s inspiration to start a business truly set a tone for her values and beliefs. As a child visiting Egypt, Marei witnessed the true poverty and hardships faced by children her exact age, which inspired her to want to make a difference and provide jobs for all individuals. Marei was encouraged by her father, who always taught her the importance of hard work and dedication.
When Marei was 26, she realized that it was time to fulfill her childhood dream and began her entrepreneurial journey. She wanted to do something innovating and passionate, so she embraced her love for sweets when creating The Dirty Cookie.
