He describes his nationality as Somali and British. At his school, more than 40 languages are spoken and his friends come from different racial backgrounds. He especially enjoys Friday afternoons when all the pupils can choose what activity to do. At home he leads family prayers and studies the Qur'an with his religious teacher.
