Hall Green to Sparkbrook – 21/01/12

Maxamed came to the UK from Dubai in 2000 and is currently on a gap year whilst studying Media. We talked about the Somali TV channels, specifically the lack of documentaries about immigrant success stories. He plans a project to counter this and also told me about work he’d previously made about khat. [157]

Asmina has always lived in Birmingham she told me about the abuse that is regularly received in some areas because of the hajib. However in Sparkbrook where she lives with her three children, she feels safe and people aren’t likely to ‘point the finger’. [573]

Mahamud has previously lived in Somalia and Holland but now resides in Sparkbrook with his wife and three daughters, two pictured below. [964]

Julian moved to the UK from Romania around 2 years ago and working in construction. He was in Hall green today to work but lives over in Walsall. [1016]
