In My Country



Season 1, Ep. 2

Join Pia's conversation with Faisa Adan in our second episode.  


Faisa is a person who wears many hats: community worker, entrepreneur, muslim, and woman of big ideas. The first half of Faisa’s childhood was lived out to the backdrop of the Somali Civil War. The second half was spent in Kakuma, one of the world’s largest refugee camps.  


Pia talks with Faisa about some of the experiences of family life in these settings; childhood stories that feel distant, but also strangely familiar. And about how she's been able to bring pieces of her past into her future in Australia.
