About Zaban's Founder
Ghazal Farkhari is an Afghan - Canadian who immigrated with her family to Canada at a very young age. Her father was a university professor, a journalist and is the author of many Farsi books. Her mother is a writer and was a teacher in Afghanistan.
Ghazal’s childhood and upbringing was focused on prioritizing cultural and educational qualities. She studied the Farsi language from a young age with the guidance of her father, and eventually taught the language to young students as well.
Ghazal founded ZABAN with the intention of sharing her knowledge of the language with her peers and other young Afghans who didn’t have an opportunity to learn the language as they were growing up abroad. She recognizes the passion and love that Afghans living outside of Afghanistan have for their country, and understands the challenges they face as they live between two cultures, languages and lifestyles. She is driven by a desire to create opportunities and empower young Afghans to reconnect with their culture and heritage; and she believes that knowledge of the language is an essential part of that process.
Ghazal earned her BA in International Development Studies from the University of Toronto and hopes to work in the development sector in Afghanistan, after pursuing her Master’s degree
