I’ve been in great shock since I heard the news of Hodan Naleyeh’s killing in an explosion in Somalia.
Hodan was an incredibly talented, creative, down-to-earth journalist who single-handedly tried to change the racist media narrative around Somalia and Somalis. pic.twitter.com/82O1wx3zvf

A sad but instructive story about why Somalis would rather get paid to lecture us here than go home and try to make their own country better.
