Nemo's amazing Life
My name is Naima but my friends call me Nemo (not after the fish). I was originally born in Somalia but I grew up in Kenya. We moved to Kenya when I was only three years old. I used to Speak Kiswahili about eight years ago but I have completly forgotten the whole language. Later, my whole family moved to America. We first arrived in Aurora, Colorado in July of 2001. I was about 9 and half years old. As you can see I was pretty young at the time too, It took me a whole year to adjust my self in the new environment. America was totally different than Africa. September 11 was a big thing at my school, I literally had classmates who would come up to me and ask me if I was related to Osama. I confidently answered their question but eventually it became hard to answer their question knowing that my sisters and I were the Muslims in the whole school. after a year and so, we moved to Columbus, Ohio. Columbus reminded me of our hometown because we had large population of somalians in there. I went to Crestiview Middle School and after two years I went to Linden Mckinley High school for three years. Then my mom decided we should move to a quieter area so we moved to Hilliard. I graduated from Hilliard Davidson High school. I have made three precious bestfriends who I will have for the rest of my life. I love shopping, eating out, and just simply hanging out with them. My favorite color is red. I can cook, but I don't enjoy cooking. I love watching basketball, my favorite team is The Lakers. I also enjoy playing soccer. I am glad to be at OSU, and I will hopefully go to their medical school and pursue my dream of becoming pediatrician.
