Who am I?
My name is Mira Awad. I am a multidisciplinary artist: A Singer, Songwriter, Actress, Artist, Designer, TV Content Creator, Storytelling Consultant and Activist.
I am half Palestinian, half Bulgarian, born and raised in a Palestinian village in the north of Israel. This complex narrative lead me to dedicate my career to advocating for peace and bridging between communities.

How did Mitra start?
It all started when I wanted to wear a shirt that says PEACE.
I printed one ShlaomSalam Tshirt that I designed, and wore it to stage and on tv interviews. People started asking me where I got it from, because they also wanted to wear the PEACE message. So I started printing and giving out to friends, then the more the demand grew, I started selling.
My Tshirt has reached corners of the planet that I have not visited myself, and I am deeply proud every time I see it on someone, somewhere. Nothing makes me happier than when I receive your photos wearing my designs.
With fervent wishes for peace and solidarity,
