Safa Idriss Nour 

Played young Waris Dirie in the movie “Desert Flower”  

When Waris Dirie decided to make her book into a movie, she went home to Somalia to do a casting and when she found Safa she knew she’d be perfect to play herself as a little girl. She was naturally curious, effervescent and loved being on camera. Since the film, Waris’ foundation supports Safa financially, pays for her schooling and makes sure she is healthy. She’s about 8 or 9 years old now and the only one in her whole clan that can read and write in both Somali and French!
