PBS American Portrait: Juweria Dahir

Juweria Dahir

Somalilandsun: As part of the PBS American Portrait Series, WNED PBS is taking some of the stories from our Making Buffalo Home project and both preparing them for a national audience while featuring them on WBFO. You can hear the segments every Monday morning for the next several weeks.

Juweria Dahir was born in Somalia amid a civil war. Relocated to Switzerland and then later the UK, she moved to the US as a result of love—her now-husband grew up in Buffalo, NY. Rooted in her spirituality, Juweria is raising her family, working on a master’s degree, and striving to be a change-maker in the community.
