A Young Man's Inspiring Journey From Somali To Harvard

The story of 20 year old Abdisamad Muhiyadin Adan should inspire every young person out there. His story shows that focus, determination and rising above one's limitations will eventually pay off.
Adan could neither speak or write English 5 years ago but today he is off to study at the prestigious Harvard University on a full scholarship.

Adan’s parents were divorced before he was born and he was raised by his grandmother in a poor neighbourhood in Somaliland, without access to clean water or electricity. Despite being born in an environment where education was not considered anything to strive for, Adan fought tirelessly to stand out and bring about change in his family and community.

He excelled as he studied by candlelight at night and performed excellently in his local primary school. He also finished 2nd in the country in the national eighth grade exams. He graduated from the Abaarso School of Science and Technology, Somali. Today his efforts have paid off  and he said that he only utilized the opportunities that came his way.
