<div dir="auto">Shamsa told Ark Media "At that age I never thought much about terrorism or violence. I used to see Alshabab on tv in the UK but I never thought it was true I believed the media was targeting Somalia but the reality was far from the truth. I witnessed an accused of stealing have his hand cut off and everyone in town had to witness his punishment. I went expecting nothing to happen but they took his hand cut showed it to everyone, as to say if you steal this will be the result. It was the most terrifying thing I have ever witnessed."</div>

<div dir="auto">Ms. Sharif "The reason I chose to share my experience is because so many are ignorant that takes place in Somalia including the ceeb culture meaning silent culture within the Somalian community (shaming victims of crimes such as rape, Domestic Violence and so much more. I want to bring awareness that silencing victims leads to death, reoffending, affects to mental health, suicide and most of all resentment towards family, community and religion."</div>

<div dir="auto">I hope to fight for the women who fall victim to rape, forced marriage, Domestic Violence, abuse, under age marriages and most of all FGM Female genital mutilation.</div>
