About Nomadic Hustle:
Historically known as a nomadic people, the Somali diaspora’s presence can be felt in nearly every country and region of the world. Often pioneering as the first generation in their families to be successful in their education and careers, the process in which it takes to break those barriers is rarely highlighted. This podcast aims to celebrate and highlight Somali excellence while shedding light on the countless success stories within our community both on a local and global scale. Focusing on inspiring the younger generation is the goal, and facilitating conversations on common issues and solutions that pertain to the Somali diaspora experience will help us stay connected as a people.
Nomadic Hustle: Shedding light on our stories while engaging in conversation to enlighten our youth and inspire our community to grow.
