Feroz Mohmand rose from being a refugee within his home country of Afghanistan to become press coordinator for Afghanistan’s president, Hamid Karzai. He was also a liaison officer between embassies, NATO, and the international media.
He, spouse Gharghashta “G” Katawazai and their family became refugees after he uncovered a plot against American diplomats and military officers. Today, military officers knowledgeable of this plot believe Mohmand’s actions saved American lives.
After a long and difficult journey, the Mohmand family relocated to Nebraska. Mohmand now works as an IT coordinator for the AOI Coroporation.
Gharghashta “G” Katawazai is the youngest person ever elected to the Parliament of Afghanistan. She subsequently served as the first female government spokesperson on public policy issues. Katawazi has been an international panelist on women’s rights issues. She spearheaded efforts to build several schools for girls and a hospital for women in her home province in Afghanistan.
