A book by Mariam Issa.

Cover of book

Mariam’s refugee journey from Somalia to Kenya, and ultimately to Australia. Mariam Issa as a child dreamt of traveling to faraway places. She did not dream she would need to flee Somalia’s civil war on a leaky overcrowded boat to Kenya – pregnant and holding her two young sons for dear life. Nor did she dream of the horrors of genital mutilation, bombings, or her close-knit family being torn apart and spread to six countries, including Australia where she now resides.
