My First Day Episode 8


Famo Musa

KPBS is exploring new ways to create stories you want to listen to, particularly stories that originate right here in San Diego.

San Diegans share the story of their first day of living here in a new podcast.

"My First Day" is a podcast produced through the KPBS Explore project, an initiative to bring original content from and about the San Diego community. Andrew Bracken produces and hosts the podcast.

The eighth episode brings us the story of Somalia-native Famo Musa who emigrated to San Diego from a refugee camp in Kenya when she was twelve, in 2004. She came with her parents and five sisters. She spoke no English when she started the seventh grade. Here is a excerpt of her story from the KPBS podcast, "My First Day," produced and hosted by Andrew Bracken.

New episodes of the podcast will be released each week, and excerpts will be played on KPBS Midday Edition on Wednesdays.
