About aliben86

you have reached the woman
who is first & foremost, Muslim, African, Ethiopian, Hareri
who hates the sound of unused running water,
the sight of an empty lit room
seeing food turned into trash
you have reached the woman
passionate about all things
african, profound, innovative
inspiring, empowering
indigenous, natural, fresh
you have reached the woman
who is not easily fazed
neither is she easily broken
you have reached the woman
who adapts to changing circumstances
and still dares to be different
you have reached the woman
who can reach for the stars and still
keep her feet on the ground
you have reached aliben86
you have reached Nebila Abdulmelik.

….as nikki giovani said, my daddy told me the world is a drum…so let’s get to beating it to our own rythms!
