Mohammed Dahir

My name means ‘the praised one’. I am seventeen years old. We are a family of six. I joined MYSA when I was twelve. My nickname is ‘BMX’ but people call me ‘Sinyorita’ becoz I look Mexican. I happen to be a Muslim. Shootback involves taking pictures and learning so many kinds of crazy words of photography. At first, my thoughts were, ‘What’s good about taking pictures?’ As time passed, I started learning more and more and things started sounding interesting. And that’s when I started being interested in photography. I like taking pictures becoz it’s a way of showing people what’s happening in a place rather than describing it. Always I dreamed about my future but I did not know what to do. Photography is now my hobby which I take as my future coming job. I also like swimming and reading politics.
