fahim.jpg

Fahim Fazli is a man of two worlds: Afghanistan, the country of his birth, and America, the nation he adopted and learned to love. Fahim is also a man who escaped oppression, found his dream profession, and then paid it all forward by returning to Afghanistan as an interpreter with the U.S. Marines from 2009-2010. He came to the United States as a refugee in his teens. He enjoyed a privileged childhood until the Russians invaded Afghanistan.

As a young adult he supported the resistance and when he and his remaining family saw the opportunity they fled to Pakistan and then eventually to the United States. He moved to California with dreams of an acting career. Fahim wrote a memoir, Fahim Speaks, that was released in early 2012. "Fahim Speaks" received the 1st place for a biography from the Military Writers Society of America.
