Reason for Blogging: I am not quite sure why I started this blog. At first it was jot down my thoughts on different subjects and feelings towards certain issues in the news as well as issues regarding my beloved country, Somalia. It was also to emphasize the rich cultural heritage of Somalia, especially the Nomadic tradition, Oral culture and Poetry. But it wasn’t long before it dawned on me that I had neither the proficiency of Somali language and its intricacy nor the indepth knowledge of Somali poetry to be embarking on such a mission.
After that, I thought this blog would serve as a platform for me to hone my writing skills and discover my raw voice, without having to pursue another writer’s style. And now after going through several transformations, at this juncture, this blog is a combination of several things but will primarily focus on Somalia and the Somali Culture.
All in all, it is all about displaying the rich Cultural Heritage of Somalia, along with some other random bits and pieces.
Interests: writing and photography – neither of which I have yet mastered.
