Authentic Powerful Stories

My fave podcast has to be the ‘Freedom Fighter’ Shabana Basij-Rasikh’s story about going to ‘secret school’ in Afghanistan, as her family risked their lives for her education. The fact that after she received her college education in US, she decided to go back to Afghanistan to start a private school for girls, is so powerful, admirable and remarkable. I was mesmerized! Bravo for sharing her inspiring & uplifting story.
