The adjective extraordinary is earned – that’s what I learned today
It’s 7: 55 PM on day 327 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself scrambled eggs and bread for breakfast, donate to the Somali people via The World Food Programme – (see why below) I am SO happy that I got to give twenty-four meals today – feed myself steamed vegetables for lunch, prepare my Kid of the Week feature for tomorrow and tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck aside from the donation Emma (@ladyday93) made last evening.
A couple of days ago I saw a story on the seven o’ clock news about a six-year-old Somalian girl who walked 400km on foot just so she could eat something and after much internal debate as to whether I should help out in some way I decided to donate $6.50 – half of what remains of my charity budget – to the people of Somalia via The World Food Programme because I believe that if all of us vote with our actions we will be the difference in somebody’s life. Have you earned the right to be called extraordinary?

If you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. Please help her do an amazing thing. http://bit.ly/hC7vOu
Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.
Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!
