Hafizullah and Nafisa Faizi

They have requested that we not include their picture in the spotlight.

This month we're spotlighting two students - married couple Nafisa and Hafizullah Faizi from Afghanistan! They've been married for almost 30 years. In Afghanistan, Nafisa worked in the home as a full-time mom, while Hafiz worked in a store and also as a driver. They arrived in the United States in 2014 and are happily settling here with their 5 kids (ranging in age from 13 to 27) and brand new grandchildren, who were born this year within 2 months of each other! When family isn't keeping them busy, they relax by taking walks - Nafisa also loves to cook and Hafiz enjoys watching television. They like coming to school together and have been working hard in their classes. Nafisa is improving her speaking skills in ESOL 2-3, and Hafiz would eventually like to get a job in his Ready to Work class. We've loved having them here - keep up the great work!
