Dhalinta ayaa keeni karta isbadalka bulsha

“Waxaan ku dhashay dalka Soomaaliya ka dibna anigoo 12 jir ah ayaan imid England. Maadaama aananu meel qudha ku nagaanin waxan soo dhigtay saddex dugsi oo kala duwan oo uu ku jiro mid London ahaa.

Waxaanu ahayn dadka qudha ee ajnebiga ah ee ku nool xaafada Openshaw ee magaalada Manchester, kumana aan haysan asxaab Soomaali ah, sidaa darteed waxaan ku qasbanaa inaan barto luuqada ingliishka, saddex bilood gudahood waxaan bartay inaan sharaxaad ka bixin karo naftayda.

” sidaa waxa tidhi; Ubax maxamed oo ka mid ah dhalinyarada ku dhaqan magaalada Manchester oo uu waraysi la yeeshay wargayska Sascanews. Ubax oo hadda jaamacada Salford ka barata culuunta kalkaalisanimo ee dhinaca carruurta iyo dayarta ah ayaa iyadoo ka waramaysa hamigeeda mustaqbalka waxa ay tidhi; “Waxaan doonayaa inaan wax fiican uga tagno jiilka oo ay wax qiimaleh inaga dhaxlaan”

Ubax oo ka waramaysa sida ay u aragto ururka Sasca oo ay mudo la shaqaynaysay, ayaa tidhi; ‘‘Ku dhawaad labbo sanno ayaan ururka Sasca kula shaqaynayey si tabaruc ah, mashruucayagii u

horeeyeyna waxa uu ahaa xog-ururin loogu magacdiray Rajada Mustaqbalka. Waxaan halkaa kula kulmay howlwadeenada Sasca oo daryeelaya bulshadooda.”

Waxayna intaa raacisay oo tidhi; “aragtidayda, ururka Sasca waxa uu u jiraa inuu taageero bulshada ku dhibasataysan dadka shaqo la’aan iyo arrimaha kale. Laga bilaabo Isniinta ilaa

Jimcaha, waxaa had iyo jeer aad ka helaysaa qof ku caawiya. Shaqo qiimo leh ayey hayaan, taasina waa ta igu dhalisay inaan sii joogo oo aan wax badan la qabto.

Waxaanan filayaa bulshada oo dhami inay mid noqondoonto oo ay wax wada qabsandoonto. ”

Ubax oo gabogabadii ka waramaysa qorshaheeda mustaqbalka, ayaa tidhi; “Marka ay timaado mustaqbalka, waxaan rabaa in aan sameeyo isbadal, haddii ay tahay dhinaca daryeelka caafimaadka

ama bulshadaba. Ujeedadaydu waa marka aad adigu isbadalka keenikarto waa inaanad sugin in qof kale sameeyo. Dhamaantayn waynu wada hamiyi karnaa laakiin waxay tahay in aynu ka shqayno himildeena.

Macalinkayga ayaa yidhaa; ‘haddii aad u malaynayso in aad samayn karto isbedel, waa maxay sababta aad bari u sugaysaa barri, samee maanta’. Waxaa jira caqabado badan oo dayarta hortaagan

waanay fududahay in la niyad-jabo, laakiin haddii aad hesho dad ku aaminsan oo ku taageera, waxa ay noqonaysaa mid sahal ah”

Young people can make a difference

By Kelly Gkari


Ubah Mohamed had to learn to adapt very quickly when she first came to the UK from Somalia.

Ubah, 21, said: “I was born in Somalia and came to England when I was 12. I went to three different schools, including one in London, since we never stayed in the same area. We were the only foreigners living in Openshaw. I had no Somali friends, so I had to learn English in order to communicate. I learned to express myself in about three months.”’

Ubah is currently studying children and young people’s nursing at the University of Salford, saying: “I want to make things better for the next generation and when they take over, we can leave and let them do their thing.

“I’m a volunteer for Sasca community and I’ve been involved for nearly two years now. Our first project was a big research called ‘A Hope for the Future’. I met with a lot of people who work for Sasca and they really look after the community. My view on Sasca is that it is there to support immigrants who find it difficult to get jobs.

“From Monday to Friday, there is always someone there to help you. There is something here that makes me want to stay and do more. I think they are doing a fantastic job and I hope we can meet with other Somali communities, become one and work together.”

When it comes to the future, Ubah says: “I want to make a difference, whether it is in healthcare or the community. My point is that one can make a difference and shouldn’t wait for another person to do it. We can all dream but it’s all about working towards our dreams. My favourite teacher says that ‘if you think that you can make  a difference, why wait for tomorrow ,do it today’. There are a lot of barriers for young people now and it’s easy to give up, but if you find someone that believes in you and supports you, it all becomes more simple.”
