“There is a woman in Somalia, scraping for pearls on the roadside There’s a force stronger than nature, keeps her will alive. This is how she’s dying, she’s dying to survive. Don’t know what she’s made of, I would like to be that brave.

I am in Somaliland, a country longing for an international recognition. I started blogging during the time when I was on the verge of becoming burnt out. Writing became my therapy, my outlet.”
