Sayed Jawad

Blogger and translator; former experience in media and public relations

I was the youngest spokesman of Afghanistan's National Cabinet before fleeing the country under threat of persecution by the Taliban and their sympathizers. Before that I had worked for six years as a media analyst with the British Embassy in Kabul, three years as news editor with Ariana Television Network and for more than ten years as the director of NARRO a local NGO in Afghanistan.
Born in Afghanistan and raised in Pakistan, I have always considered myself a citizen of the world. Fluent in four languages, I find the most tranquil in me when reading history, writing about human beings and listening to instrumental music.
