    I never plan anymore since I put my trust in Allah (SWT). I do work I love and see where it leads me. I believe in working hard and seeing the fruits of your labor.

    Hello Hodan. Welcome to SS.

    My questions:

    1) Can your kids speak fluent Somali?
    2) Who and how were you discovered?

    Thanks for the response.

    My other question if not too personal.

    What political party shares your views? Are you a supporter of Wynne and Trudeau?

    I never looked at going back home as a culture clash. I believe people connect no matter what if there is kindness. As long as diaspora are friendly and kind to locals, there is no problem. Many locals complain diaspora act stuck up. I was suprised when in Mogadishu that locals were shocked I was talking to them. They said diaspora never engage with them. But a lot has changed since my documentary. Diaspora are more friendly and they are working with locals more on solutions. In regards to security, 95 percent of our country is safe. Mogadishu has a scares, but I think you can explore other cities if you fear that. I love going to smaller towns now.

    I am not into politics. More of a humanitarian. I stand up for principles and what social causes I can impact, never focus on politics.
    More can be done when you impact people through inspiration than politics

    I studied Journalism in university, but gave up the career when I could not make a decent living. I worked in corporate, but realized my love for media never died. I went back to school and started training all over again 3 years ago. I love it and would not trade it for anything

    My role model is Les Brown. He is an amazing motivational speaker who inspired to follow my dreams at the lowest point of my life when I was going thru a divorce

    Regarding Integration TV, where do you see yourself taking the show? Will it still be free?

    Growing up I always wanted to learn about Somalia and never saw a TV that shared our country from the perspective of a diaspora returnee. So, Integration is bringing us back to our roots and loving who we are and where we come from. I wanted to create what I yearned for growing up
