From the pictures of home that leave me nostalgic, the travellers that give me wanderlust or social activist who motivate me to do more, Instagram is the place for inspiration. This platform has connected Somalis across the globe to come together and share their lived experiences, postively.
Here are my current favourite Somali Instagrammers:
Saida | Clean Eating Somali
IIwad Elman | i_elman
Khadija M Farah | FarahKhad
To view Dadaab only through the lens of idleness and misery is to sorely misunderstand a camp that is pregnant with untapped potential. Today, after having a chat with some talented football players I got to know in Ifo 2, I felt like I was the only one who benefitted from telling their stories. That, coupled with the guilt I feel for leaving them behind has compelled me to ask for your help. If you want to know how you can help them continue playing the game they love, shoot me a DM or email.
Hodan | Booksandteacups
Somali Wanderers | Somwander
Enjoy your stalking & thank me later.
Peace & love,
