Today officially makes two years since I launched by self-published book, YESHIALEM LEARNS ABOUT FISTULA. For the first time, see photos from the launch in London that happened on November 17th 2015. #2YearsOfYeshialem
Thanks to everyone who helped out- I don't want to mention names, as there were so many people who helped make the launch possible! Many thanks though to the SOAS Student Enterprise Office, my mom Afua, Gillian, Israa, Bilen, Birkbeck University, Yared, Yasmin, Abiola (Afrokanist Magazine), Abukar, Fauzia, and everyone who volunteered.
