HUMAIRA GHILZAI

Writer. Speaker. Consultant.

I can hlep you understand the cultures, conflict, and communities of Islamic countries.

The world is changing, but many of us aren’t equipped to change with it. For people who are curious and want to move past the stories in the media, I want to help you open your eyes to the realities of other cultures because we fear what we do not know.

By putting a face to the issues that are happening around we connect on a human level, because at the end of the day we are all fighting the same issues.

“People fear what they do not understand.”


Ms. Ghilzai has an encyclopedic knowledge of Afghanistan, its history and culture. She weaves into her presentations her personal story as an Afghan and her current work with her non-profit organization, Afghan Friends Network, and on her monthly blogs on Afghan life and culture. She has special insights into the status of Afghan women, both historically and in present times. She blends into her talks Afghan history, current politics and culture.
