The first group of young female entrepreneurs graduate from Startup Valley, Afghanistan’s first private business incubator.

Pretty rad night talking about women's education in Afghanistan as the guest speaker for Santa Cruz's "Dining For Women" chapter. Coming to the states was a matter of good fortune that allowed me a life of privilege compared to what my Afghan sisters had to go through. I'm grateful to be a part of the solution in creating innovative programs through @sahareducation that allows these girls to pursue an education and dare to dream of a life beyond early marriage. Please follow @sahareducation For our current work on the ground and if you're in the Seattle area next week come to our gala at sodo house! I'd love to see you all there! #afghan#GirlsEducation#saharEducation#AfghanWomen
