Somali-Swedish Archaeologist Sada Mire and Iraqi-British Architect Zaha Hadid
WHAT THE WORLD’S ONLY ACTIVE SOMALI ARCHAEOLOGIST HAS IN COMMON WITH THE IRAQI-BRITISH WINNER OF THE PRITZKER ARCHITECTURE PRIZE
They are both women leaders born to the predominately Muslim nations. Forced to leave for the Western world, where they received education, Dr Sada Mire of Somaliland and Zaha Hadid of Iraq traveled back to their home countries to do creative projects and uplift the lives of the local communities by re-branding their motherlands.
Having a background in journalism, Sada has produced films on Somali cultural heritage and management for Somaliland TV. She also produced a short film report for Channel Four UK about the young single Somali refugees who are susceptible to terrorist groups in the UK.
