Steevo and I are lucky enough to have a ton of awesome kids in our neighborhood. We are really close with 4 families, who are refugees from Somalia.
So, during Spring Break we decided to host a party for the kids at our house. We had music, dancing, snacks, pizza, cake and….. screenprinting! As I have mentioned before, I screenprint shirts for a Somali hip-hop/R&B group called the Lil Kiziguwaz. All of the neighborhood kids love the shirts. So, as a surprise at the party, each kid got to screenprint their very own Lil Kiziguwaz shirt. We even made a baby onesie for one of their Mothers who was expecting. Congratulations Makay! (She gave birth to Mukufu Osman on April 12th). These kids always make my day. When I come home, 95% of the time, one of the kids (usually 5-10 kids) are outside and come running over to say ‘hello’ while screaming “Amy…Amy….Amy!” It makes me feel all good inside. 🙂
