Azita Ghanizada

Azita Ghanizada (pronounced "Ghani-za-da"; born November 17 1979) is an Afghan American actress in the United States who has appeared in a number of television series. Born in Kabul, Afghanistan, her family fled her native country when she was still a baby in the wake of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. They travelled to the United States and were granted asylum as political refugees. Raised by a conservative family, she has two sisters; her parents separated when she was in middle school.
