Mbiame New Vision join the rest of the world to celebrate International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation.
Case of #African continent I wish to celebrate.
The now visible bruises on my face because I have spoken.
That I can now speak and I am done being weak.
That I am a flame that burns in many broken souls.
That I will be the yawn on survivors’ faces upon the break of dawn.
That I will make no excuses for the woman I have become.
This winner in me. The tapped wealth in reason and resource in me.
That I celebrate the voices of other survivors. Together, we have spoken.
And we have overcome the fear of losing bond. Together we’ll rise above.
I celebrate our voice, the voice of Africa’s youth, that will be heard.
I wish to celebrate the way Allah has created me for He has perfected me the way I am.
