Fatima Jaghoori


Fatima Jaghoori, is a Hazara Afghan native, U.S. Army OIF veteran, a Kansas State student. She is trying to move one piece of sand at a time during this sandstorm that began Aug 15, 2021. A lover of freedom, seeker of equality, believer in the American Dream, her goal is ensuring the voices of the women in danger in Afghanistan are heard. Shakila Nazari and Fatima are cousins who want equality for women in the U.S. military and Afghan military, despite race or gender. The journey of standing shoulder to shoulder with our Afghan Allies is new but the roots built over the years are deep through empathy, humanity, and understanding. “We can achieve equality and cohesion once we hear one another, together we can be amazing.”
