The Story of My Life: An Afghan Girl on the Other Side of the Sky by Farah Ahmedi with Tamim Ansary [in AsianWeek]

Story of My LifeGood Morning America viewers, with a panel of bestselling authors, chose Ahmedi’s story in a nationwide search for the most extraordinary true-life experience. Afghan-born Ahmedi’s 19 years are marked by tragedies: a landmine accident, almost two years of recovery alone in a German hospital, the loss of her father and siblings to a bomb attack, the escape to a Pakistani refugee camp with her ill mother, and their difficult immigration to the United States after 9/11. With the help of numerous angels around her, Ahmedi’s stubborn spirit miraculously remains infused with hope.
