I am Yasminah. I was born in the 80's in Mogadishu, Somalia.
In 1990, my father was sought by warlords who were bloodthirsty and money hungry.
They assassinated my uncles, robbed my neighbors, and raped the women next door.
In 1991, my home was destroyed and we were forced to leave everything behind -my fathers’ pride,
my mothers’ heart, our history, and most importantly, our comfort.
We became home-less, as we tried to escape a country where my umbilical cord was buried.
