    Can you tell us of the history of how Integration TV started?

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

    Hey hodan just wanna say I love your work and hope to see more success coming your way!


    Why do you think theres a stigma around divorced somali women?

    Ever thought about doing a cooking show?

    Male or Female president in Somalia and Why?

    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

    I liked when you guys went around to different diaspora communities, do you have any more of those planned?

    I'd love to see more obscure exotic communities like the Somalis in Malaysia or the Mid East.

    Thank you brother! I used to think divorce was a stigma, but I realized being in a bad relationship is more of a stigma. Things happen in life and how we deal with them determines who we become. Divorce is very hard and should never to be taken lightly, however, children must always come first. Adults make mistakes and kids should not have to pay for them.

    I love the cooking show idea...we are working on it!! Real entertainment!!

    I would love a female president, but the society is not ready now. Perhaps, in the near future.

    I would love change the hearts of our people...to stop focusing on tribalism and start rebuilding together. Every part of our great country
    needs rebuilding in education, healthcare and most importantly, the mind!!

    Do you have a following in Somalia? Were many people (the locals especially) able to recognize who you and your program were ?

    Hello Hodan!
    Glad to have you on Ss.

    Im surprised you're so optimistic about the future of Somalia, I really don't think Somalia will ever be stable or stand on its feet, it's just L's after L's!

    I want to continue building and work on creating great content in this digital age. I am excited that this work, insha'Allah, will out live me and be historical to watch for my children and their children.

    I am always amazed how many people know me when I travel back home! I really feel honored that the locals feel hope for their country
    after they see our shows. I am grateful to Allah (SWT) for connecting me to my country and people. People back home accept me because they see my heart is pure and I love Somalia. I was scared of not knowing much Somali, but I am getting better now. The best language is the language of the heart!!
