a fascinating and harrowing memoir, especially during the first half, but waris has such an incredible story to tell. But the book is remarkable less for its deliberately dramatic set pieces, and more for its haunting evocation of the little-told life of Somalian nomads, seen from a child's telling perspective, where life centres on the beloved camels, the horrors of womanhood are still an exciting mystery, and the nights are filled with the smell of frankincense.

Despite all the hardship she had endured, Waris is so full of life and ready to make the most of every situation she finds herself in.

The BBC commissioned the programme “A Nomad in New York”, based on Waris Dirie for their series “The day that changed my life”. Potresna prica djevojke koja je prosla put od somalske nomatkinje i pastirice do supermodela i ambasadorice UN-a. Her story is a truly inspirational and extraordinary self-portrait of a remarkable woman whose spirit is as breathtaking as her beauty. Let it also be said, for those critical of her lifestyle, that if she would not have departed Somalia, she would have been tending goats, been burdened with several children, likely would have been illiterate, and dominated by a much older man.

Her previous work includes the international bestseller Desert Flower , which was adapted as a feature film. That same year, she was appointed UN Special Ambassador for the Elimination of Female Genital Mutilation(FGM). Their lives are determined by the wishes of men who wish to control every aspect of their existence, including even their sexuality.Sada ima 13 godina, pa onda ima 5, pa ima oko 9, pa ima tri, pa ima 11 i onda je manekenka, pa nakon toga ima 9 godina i onda 13. Despite her later acquired fame and wealth, she never forgets where she came from, she still has sincere love for the simplicities in life, and still prefers to live a nomadic life wherever possible. Meiner Meinung nach ist die Geschichte auf Englisch etwas anders, aber es lässt sich wirklich super lesen und auch wenn man ein paar Wörter auf anhieb nicht ganz versteht, kann man sich das zm. Tuve todo el tiempo la sensación de estar charlando con una amiga que me estaba contando la historia de su vida. She was to be betrothed, as a young teenage girl (birth dates were not recorded in her tribe), to a much older man.

Milijonai mergaičių ir moterų kenčia nuo šio žiauraus papročio, tad bet kokios pastangos, galinčios paskatinti tokių veiksmų stabdymą, mano nuomone, turi būti labai vertinamos.Dirie's beauty led her to a career as a fashion model; her experience as a young girl subjected to circumcision led her to speak out against the practice and eventually become a human rights ambassador to the United Nations. When you see what she had to do to get away from the marriage and the unfair life she would lead, you realize how completely those without relatives in cities and the pluck and beauty of Dirie are trapped. Unfortunately, only 13% of the book covers this information, and Chapter 17 seems to be written with a different voice (perhaps by Cathleen Miller, her co-author? She has interviewed diplomats and heads of state on five continents, patients in an Addis Ababa hospital, rape camp survivors in Kosovo, and midwives in the mountains of East Timor. She’s also featured in a Ted Talk on a topic dear to her heart: “How to Raise Your Daughter to Become a World Leader.
