Boqorad : Somali word for Queen.

Tagline: Reclaiming my majesty.

This blog is an attempt in me redefining myself and those like me in the contexts of the different communities  we identify with. For so long, black history meant transatlantic slave trade. For so long, Islam has meant terrorism. For so long, being a woman meant being feeble.

I identify with all these communities however these labels attached are not ones that define me as a person.
