Biographical and Professional Information

Farah Ahmedi is a motivational speaker, refugee, survivor and author. Her book chronicles her journey from war to peace. It delivers a vivid portrait of her girlhood in Kabul, where the sound of gunfire and the sight of falling bombs shaped her life and stole her family. She herself narrowly escapes death when she steps on a land mine. This event takes her to refugee camps across the border, and finally to America. Ahmedi proves that even in the direst circumstances, not only can the human heart endure, it can thrive. Farah Ahmedi is a trure inspiration to us all.
