If you grew up in a war-torn country (or experienced some other form of adversity), maybe you can relate.
My name is Parwiz Mosamim, and I was born on March 21st, 1994 in Herat, Afghanistan. I spent almost 23 years in a country that has experienced violent conflict for the last 40 years. The tough days of my life in Afghanistan encouraged me to follow my dreams by putting education first.
There’s nothing quite like seeing hard work pay off. After a bachelor's in Journalism from Herat University in Afghanistan, I did my master's in Public Administration at University Padjadjaran in Indonesia through the KNB scholarship. I am about to embark on my Ph.D., and will do so with more confidence and a wider horizon thanks to a stint at a top university in Switzerland.
