I was born in 1981 in Kabul, Afghanistan. I’ve experienced horrible periods of invasions and civil war since my childhood. I’ve witnessed genocides to suicides, executions to murders and massacres, assassinations to terrors, poverty to scarcity and from homelessness to landlessness. These tragedies my hopes and optimism far behind. These catastrophes have affected my personal and professional life and like millions of my fellow Afghans, I was deprived of my basic human rights since my life began. Despite these dilemmas, I overcame many of the challenges and moved forward to enjoy from what I have. I finished my high school and I learned English language and computer skills during the 6 years when I was refugee in Pakistan, I was waving carpet during the whole day and very late of the evening I had a chance to attend in school and language center,
