Eighteen-year-old Saida Dahir, a Somali refugee living in the US, has told the BBC that her new spoken-word collection of poetry is her way of showing people - like US President Donald Trump - what it is like to be a migrant.
The collection, The Walking Stereotype, was released on iTunes last month and includes 13 poems, all in English, as Dahir does not speak Somali.
She told BBC Newsday that Paper and Pen was her favourite poem, written in response to President Trump's move last year to ban the citizens of several Muslim countries, like Somalia, from coming to America.
Dear Mr President, In those seven countries, children can't even go to school. And here we have the audacity to sit in class and drool. So many children wish for an education, with no limitation - but they live in a nation where little boys learn about war way before they learn their ABC, while their families are thirsty and dying of disease. And when those bombs hit, there's no where left to flee. Are you too blind to even see clearly?"
She told the BBC that it felt natural to turn to poetry to express herself as Somalia is "the nation of poets":
Every single person in my family writes poetry and has a way with their words.''
The teenage poet, who lives in Salt Lake City, says the title of her collection came from a joke her friend made when they noticed that she was a part of many marginalised groups in the US:
I am black, I am a Muslim, I am a refugee, I am a woman... .and she joked, 'Saida, you're basically the walking stereotype.' From there, I took that phrase and ran with it, because it was so true.''
