While in Agadir her studies stopped because she struggled with the local dialect that was different from her own. Growing up she was exposed to weaving as those in her family were weavers but she didn’t want anything to do with it. Hayat describes how time went on and her idea of weaving changed. Over the years she taught herself how to make rugs and pillowcases, she describes having different ideas and putting them into her work. Hayat joined the cooperative as a way to help her family.
