Freaba Morrad Visiting her Cousins in Afghanistan

In this slideshow, you will see:
Freaba Morrad (in pink) with her cousins. Freaba is an Afghan-American woman who was born and raised in the U.S. She visited Maymana, her parents' hometown in the Faryab Province of Afghanistan, in 2003 for the first time. This picture was taken during that visit. This trip deeply impacted her perspective of her own identity as an Afghan American woman who had never before visited her family's roots in Afghanistan

Freaba Morrad, second from the right, with her cousins. This visit was her first experience of the Afghan culture outside of the U.S. context and her life as an Afghan-American. This trip was the start of a deeper appreciation of her identities both as an Afghan and as a woman living in the U.S.
