When civil war reached my home town I fled from Somalia 1991. Then I lived refugee camps between border Kenya and Somalia. Before the war I worked at livestock development and agriculture sector at University in Somalia because I studied Veterinary medicine. I came in Canada 1997 as a refugee sponsored by the Canadian government from refugee camp in Kenya.

When I came I went to school to improve my English. After a year I started to work at  High tech Company as an assembler in Ottawa. I worked almost two years. Then I went to Algonquin College where I achieved  my social work diploma. After I graduated I worked in various places, such as Ottawa Public library as a settlement counsellor for Newcomers for a year. Then I started working at Somali Centre for Family Services as a settlement program coordinator.

I started to learn French. But I did not become complete bilingual but I am half bilingual. I speak Italian.
