The Swirling Hijaab in Spanish and English by Na'ima bint Robert

About the Author

Na’ima B. Robert, born in Leeds and raised in Zimbabwe, is descended from Scottish Highlanders on her father’s side and the Zulu people on her mother’s side. She went on to gain a first class degree from the university of London. Having worked in marketing, the performing arts, teaching and the travel and tourism industry, she now has a wonderful time being a mum, running a magazine and writing children’s books. She divides her time between Egypt and the U.K.

Na’ima has been fascinated by Somali culture ever since her first encounter with immigrant Somali students in East London. The idea for From Somalia With Love came to her on a weekend retreat for Somali youth. It is her first novel for teenagers.
