Abla Elmi created Mogadishu Diaries to change the narrative of one of the world's most feared places by showing daily life in Somalia's capital city. The six part series takes viewers through episodes that cover among others; an introduction to the history of Somalia, arrival in Mogadishu, the arts and cultural scene, Diaspora kids, inspirational people and a parody of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Initially designated as a school project, the Mogadishu Diaries developed into a much sought after video series as it caught the attention of the Somali public, especially its youthful fraternity starved of original Somali stories. The six part series takes viewers through episodes that cover among others; an introduction to the history of Somalia, arrival in Mogadishu, the arts and cultural scene, Diaspora kids, inspirational people and a parody of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (titled ‘the Fresh Prince of Mogadishu’).

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
