 Migrant Voice - MV member shares her poetry on Birmingham local radio

Migrant Voice member Shirin is from Somalia and lived in Italy for a decade before settling in the UK. She had a dream to share her bilingual poems on broadcast radio but couldn't find a way of achieving this, until she attended a Migrant Voice MiFriendly Cities Media Lab session in Birmingham.

There she met Vimal who invited her onto his V&Z radio show on Birmingham's Big City Radio. She performed her poems in Italian and English and took part in some live percussion performance too.
