They told me to stop because my photos were on the internet and they are very shy folk. They don't want any attention circling the family, good or bad. And when people called my parents and started asking questions, they just didn't like the attention. I was surprised that Somalis were calling to congratulate me and not give me lectures.Why did your parents tell you to stop your model career? Due to stigmatization?
I didn't want to get into modeling, I just happened to be with my friend who was signing with an agency. They kept saying "You guys, you guys, you guys." And when I told them I wasn't here for myself, but rather to support a friend ..they told me "No, we are signing you." So it went from there. Same agency I've been with since. Modeling came as a benefit when I did my first pageant. After winning, I was able to reach more people than I would have imagined when it came to my platform.what made u get in to modelling? was your goal to use modelling as a platform for other career opportunities?

Jawahir during my time in PL i suspected that there must a connection between all the chemicals sprayed on Khat, the insomnia that comes with chewing Khat mixed with suspicion that comes with it contributed a lot to the deteriorating mental health.
In your professional opinion does my theory sound right and what factors do you think contributes to the deterioration of mental health back home?
