My name is MAYSA ZEYAD and I was born in Sana’a, Yemen. I lived there for ten years until my mom decided to move us to Canada after my dad passed away and because living in Yemen as a strong Somali woman was not sustainable for my mom. Moving to Canada has been interesting and challenging for me because of the culture difference; but it has also been a great help in finding my identity and who I am and where I belong as a mixed race person. I’m a social service worker and I advocate for women, challenging a system that was not made for Black women and women of colour so we don’t have to be in a battlefield everyday.
