Anisa Sala, ACTIVIST

A native of Somalia, Anisa Salat was the first in her family to graduate from secondary school.  After being awarded the prestigious Zawadi scholarship, Anisa attended Bryn Mawr College where she earned her bachelor's degree in urban planning.  Currently she works at Shuraako, where she invests in early-stage businesses making a positive social impact in Somalia.  Anisa had a two year residency on the farm, taking walks to the mesa like the WHW activist before her, writing in her journal and picking apples from the seven apple trees surrounding her cottage.  Like the WHW residents before her, Anisa was selected to be a scholar at the Aspen Institute.
