I am committed to not only the idea but the reality of a Africa that is able to transcend famine, war, disease, dictators, incompetent and corrupt "leaders" and every other plague to become what all those who fought for her independence dreamed she could. I am a Globcall Goodwill Ambassador, a world citizen with Somali origins connecting cultures and people worldwide and blogging about global issues that matter to me and that i feel should also matter to you.
I seek knowledge and personal growth through personal encounters and through living my life to the fullest.
