Storyboard Text

  • It was a long trip, from plane to plane.
  • When we landed in Somalia on the plane, we rode the rest of the way by bus. It wasn't too bad.
  • We went to many different places and cities, but the one place I held most dear was Qorilay.
  • My father's hometown in the countryside.
  • There, I got to sit and talk with my grandparents, distant relatives, and neighbors every day.
  • My grandfather Mahmoud enjoyed it most.
  • He and I used to sit down and talk while drinking milk tea everyday.
  • Even though I struggled speaking Somali, we still enjoyed our time together and learned from each other.
  • Soon after we left Qorilay, we left Somalia.
  • My friends and family back in Somalia supported me and I eventually improved.
  • Learning another language is valuable, but learning another's heart is priceless.
  • Even though I couldn’t speak Somali, they understood and knew what I meant in my heart. I learned something.
