i am tafsiro

About this film:

My name is Devon Cone. I love Somalis. I met Tofsiro after trying to get her cousins from a refugee camp in Kenya to join her in Boston. She arrived here unable to speak English when she was 6 years old. Somali women are amazing example os strength and dignity amidst difficult circumstances. I made this film to see how they truly live here and find the hidden story of Tofsiro's life. She has said, "I am Somali, I just live in America."

Ways to help:

  • Be kind to all people in the community - newly arrived or otherwise
  • If you want to volunteer to help refugees or asylum seekers in the Boston area like Tofsiro or her family, contact the International Institute of Boston or The International Rescue Committee
  • If you want to learn more about female circumcision, the World health Organization provides some info here or ask someone like I did.
