As-Salam Alaykum, Jowhara is excited to teach you what that means and how to respond to it like a native Somali speaker. She was born in Kenya, and she is of Somali-Bantu heritage (someone who is Kenyan ethnically, but culturally Somalian). She is a college student, barista and activist who loves to share her knowledge with anybody who is willing to listen. Jowhara believes communicating our knowledge, skills, and perspective with one another is what breaks barriers and helps us better understand. ultimately bringing change that benefits all. She is excited to learn from her students just as she is to teach.
