Pretty great local story. "Dr. Anisa Ibrahim was 5 years old when her life was uprooted by the grisly consequences of a gruesome civil war.

Fleeing Somalia in 1992 with her family, Ibrahim sacrificed a year of her childhood in refugee camps in Kenya.

"There were so many people in small quarters, all of us were fleeing the downstream effects of violence and political unrest," Ibrahim, 32, told CNN. "Our family was luckier, but there was a lot of poverty, malnutrition, and infectious diseases and outbreaks."

Good for her. Challenges and obstacles bring out the best in some people. Not everybody is as successful in those circumstances.
