I have long been impressed with the focus on politics and that focus being… from young people.
I'm a person who's always been interested in politics and thought it was a very noble occupation.
If Barack Obama's campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed. Hillary Clinton has worn the traditional clothing of countries she has visited and had those photos published widely.
I still want to hold on to my beliefs, and as long as I have that, I won't stray too far from politics.
I just have this thing about injustice. Everybody hates the big injustices – I know. But I hate even the little injustices, even the way a salesclerk treats somebody who is shabbily dressed and happens to go into a nice store.
