When I Get Older free pdf Somali-Canadian poet, rapper, singer and songwriter K'naan tells his own story. When the Somali Civil War began in 1991, K'naan was just thirteen. His mother made the difficult decision to move her family so that they could grow up in safety. First in New York and then in Toronto, K'naan faced many challenges.

About K'Naan

Winner of three Juno awards and recently named "the Globe and Mail's "Artist of the Year, singer/songwriter/rapper/hip hop artist/social activist and, now, children's book author, K'NAAN has a moving and inspiring personal story. K'NAAN (whose name means "traveler" in Somali) spent his childhood in Mogadishu surrounded by a loving family which included his aunt, one of Somalia's most famous singers, and his poet grandfather. When K'NAAN was thirteen, he and his family fled war-torn Somalia and immigrated to Toronto. His story is inspiring, and his struggles as a new immigrant will speak to many young North Americans. Now in his thirties, K'NAAN has had huge success as a singer. He has won many awards, and there are now twenty-two versions of his song, "Wavin' Flag." He lives in LA where he is at work on his third album. His children's book is a tribute to growing up, and believing in the future, as he says: "When I get older, I will be stronger..."
