Firas is a young Palestinian man. He is 25 years old, and he lives in Ein Yabroud village next to Ramallah City. Firas is a member of a big family consisting of 8 members. He and the whole family (the adults) work at selling Carob Juice during summer in the streets of Ramallah city and coffee during the winter.
