    Masha Allah. Look at how much work she puts in.:wow::salute: Her smile can light up a room. She's so positive and kindhearted. People like her make me proud to be Somali. May Allah bless her in this life and the next.

    Great watch and mama Istarlin is a strong and hardworking lady. Wish her all the best.

    N.B

    I thought she speaks English like Sijui Somalis, is she a Somali from Kenya?

    Istarliin is a common Somali name. It's some sort of a beautiful tree, I think.

    Awh I love this wallahi, she's the sweetest! I hope she stays safe though, being an uber driver can be quite scary.

    I’ve been told that the name Istarliin came from the British pound (currency). The Arabs say, gineh Istarliin and Somalis say, Istarliin.

    I got a relative called Istarlin and that is how it was explained to me. Let's see what others say.

    Aussie is right. I have family who is called istarlin as well and yes the name comes from the british currency. A way to say someone is worth a lot...

    Why does she have a Kenyan accent in English? Her accent doesn't sound Somali

    She needs to put her girl on a diet.
