"My childhood memories are one of the treasures that I have in my life that keeps me going, that made me what I am today - is growing up in Mogadishu. In a city that was peaceful, where everybody was calling auntie and uncle, where I had the best time of my life.
I got married and fell in love – my daughter was born there and when she was 2 months old we had to leave. Mogadishu was everything for me. It was complete in a way.
I was very young but in a way I was already a woman when I left Mogadishu.  I had all my memories gathered together in my little suitcase, everything was in there for me."

"I was only 18 just turned 19 when I left Mogadishu. So I have lived outside of Somalia more years then inside. But then growing in Mogadishu being that little Somali girl in Mogadishu is what I have in me."
