Raised in a nomadic Somali family, apparently raped at age four and then mutilated in a female circumcision ritual at age five, Dirie bravely ran away from home at thirteen to avoid being married off to an old man. Waris Dirie (Somali: Waris Diiriye, Arabic: واريس ديري‎) (born in 1965) is a Somali model, author, actress and human rights activist. From a nomadic life in the Somali desert, to the most exclusive designer runways in the world – a wonderful dream. Meiner Meinung nach ist die Geschichte auf Englisch etwas anders, aber es lässt sich wirklich super lesen und auch wenn man ein paar Wörter auf anhieb nicht ganz versteht, kann man sich das zm.

Desert Children” is in many ways a shocking book but it is also a book full of strength and hope for millions of women worldwide. The Desert Flower Foundation and all its campaigns, projects and activities are financed by private donations. Female genital mutilation targets little girls, baby girls – fragile angels who are helpless, who cannot fight back. As a novel it would be unbelievable, as Waris survives circumcision, rape, arranged marriage, a lion attack--you name it, she's lived through it.Desert Flower: The Extraordinary Journey of a Desert Nomad is an autobiographical book written by Waris Dirie and Cathleen Miller, published in 1998 about the life of Somali model, Waris Dirie. Waris Dirie's memoir is an extraordinary journey : from desert nomad,to domestic servant,to supermodel,to UN ambassador for the elimination of FGM.

She shared, in detail, her personal experiences as FGM was performed on her when she was only 5-years-old, as well as her painful issues while urinating and menstruating as she grew older.Miller's travel essays have appeared in the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle and Los Angeles Times .
