Nurse. Every Somali hooyo is encouraging her daughter to be one.


Social Worker.

For men, it’s Engineer, Accountant or something in Computer Science.

Somalis don’t typically tell their kids to pursue medicine, law or doctorate degrees because they take too long and they want lacag right away. They don’t care about delayed gratification.
