Malyun Ali, also known as Mama Malyun Suuban (MMS), currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona, as homeless person. Previously lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and moved away from there due to threats and cyberbullying by the Somali community. The attack started due to the fact that she decided to speak up for the rights of the women of Somali, both abroad and back in Somalia.

Malyun Ali is a mother of three adult children and one grandchild. She is the voice of the voiceless and have challenged a culture that sees their women as second-class citizens. She is a businesswoman, a visionary, trailblazer and has a heart of gold. She has helped countless of victims throughout the years.

She is a YouTuber and is the first person of Somali descended to come out public as a child sexual-abuse survivor.

She has published his new book “I Cannot Be Silenced”: a deeply personal memoir of the horrific abuse she endured as a child and young woman in her native Somalia, and an eye-opening indictment of the deep-seated misogyny in patriarchal cultures.

She writes, “What you will read about in these pages has not just been my experiences but those of many women who are afraid to share their shameful secrets. My message is twofold: (1) to encourage women to shed this cloak of shame they have been forced to wear by both men and women who believe it is their right and privilege to steal their spirits; and (2) to inform and educate people of the Western world who can join with us in our fight for freedom.

“Others cannot feel your passion for change if they are ignorant of your lifetime of pain. There is no such thing as a silent cause. I promise you, speaking out will heal your soul, and that is what this book will show you how I have done it.

“This book will offer a platform for Western women/men to hear about and learn how to help female immigrants to better assimilate and adjust to new environments and communities as well. This book will be a guide to many service provider and individuals who are working with Somali community to understand them in a true, authentic, transparent, and honest way of working with this community victims and individuals who are not able to speak up and seek support.”
