After being caught in Somalia's horrific civil war, Zamzam escapes with her mother, sister, and brothers to America. But when she arrives, she learns that she has to deal with biases and stereotyping she isn’t prepared to handle. Zamzam dreams of making a difference in this world, and she wants to be seen as a person who has value.

Through My Eyes is a story of compassion, empathy, and the importance of eliminating stereotypes to promote social justice. Join eleven-year-old Zamzam as she navigates her way through her new country while embracing her Somali values.

Tammy Wilson

Tammy Wilson is an elementary school principal in Saint Cloud, MN. Working in a school with a high Somali population, she saw a need for her students to see themselves represented in literature. This compelled her to write a book to not only inspire children, but also educate adults. Tammy has three adult children who live in Minnesota. She has a taste for adventure, spending time in nature, listening to live music, and traveling to new destinations.
