About Me

Am committed to the idea and the reality of a Somalia that is able to transcend famine, war, disease, dictators, incompetent and corrupt clannist "leaders" to transform into what all those who fought for her independence dreamed she could be. May we stand united for the voiceless. May we inspire the weak to stand and lift those in need. We are laying a solid foundation which is strong enough to be enjoyed by generations. I tremendously enjoy campaigning for sustainable peace and development and I also enjoy academic challenges. Helping those in need in a personal way is something that is deep-rooted in me, something that is part and parcel of my spirit and nature. I am a social entrepreneur and a fundraiser for women's causes. I truly believe in the power and potential of investing in Somali women and youth and therefore completely devote myself to this cause.

Key words: poetry, activism, writing, women, leadership, girls, human rights, gender.
