About Me: 

thank you very much for giving me this opportunity to say and write my feeling.

i was born in 1990 in a small town in kenya called garissa and after two years my father divorced my mother due to something i will say its affecting the whole somali community.

my father was a government clerk in one of the government offices in garissa and my mother was a middle class business woman. they meet and agreed that the will marry each other . the marriage hapend and after 1 year his family heard that their son has married another woman in garissa and they came running and my father refused to divorce my mother and they stayed together for some years. so they thinked and told them self that they will use magic and get woman out of my fathers life.

after 1 year my mum got divorced and my dad was somehow crazy. that time my father was nt having a shilling and my mother became a hotel cooker . i stayed with my mum and i started to go to school. i finished my primary school and my heard that my father has got a good job which he was earning 15000$ which is a huge amount of money when its changed to kenyan currency .

my mum sent me to my fathers place and i talked to him and told him i need fees soo that i will go to secondary school.

(i will complete this story when i get a computer again, i was using a cyber cafe and my small shillings are over)
