Mariam Omar
Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I’m originally from Somalia 🇸🇴 But I grew up in Yemen 🇾🇪 I came from a divorced family so ma mama raised me and my father was never part of my life .
What are the bad things you see on social media?
Ugh man a lot one of them is bullying and harassing other ppl. I’m muslim and I cover my hair I get at least 10 comments a week if not more saying take it off ur beautiful without it or ppl commenting and saying a lot of crazy stuff about ma religion. These ppl are sick and they need special help ASAP they have a lot of negative things to say and having social media makes it 10 times easier for them to talk or point fingers at ppl .
What are the hardships you go through?
Just been Muslim and living without seeing my mom it’s been 5 years since i moved here to Malaysia and I didn’t see my mother since then because she works as a doctor so she didn’t wanna leave her job and not Be able to provide for me and ma sister . Also living in this country is very difficult ppl here love you if your white or hv lighter skin but as a brown skin person I get aloooooooot of comments and the other day a lady came to me she was trying to sell whiting cream to me I told her why me she said this will make ur skin look lighter I told her I want darker skin lady I’m happy like that .
What are your goals in life?
In few months I’ll start ma university and I’ll study education or maybe media and communications
What would you do if you could change the world?
I just want to tell ppl don’t judge others me been black doesn’t mean I’m dangerous or me been Muslim doesn’t mean I will blow up this building ppl are different and you can’t absolutely judge NOBODY
Are you happy in the position you are now in life?
