Shannon is as brave as they come. For almost a decade she has battled the odds to empower Afghanistan’s dispossessed and disabled populations. Now, at a time when women’s rights are again under attack across South Asia, she provides a poignant story of how education and sport can overcome Taliban attacks and social neglect.

Inspiring as only a real doer can be.

– Parag Khanna, Senior Fellow, New America Foundation, and author of The Second World: Empires and Influence in the New Global Order
