Afghan Girl Found

This is an old article but I love this story. In browsing National Geographic I came across this picture once again and as always, the sea green eyes took me. This photo has graced the biggest magazines and she had no idea. Last March when I was backpacking, the story was advertised in huge posters on a Portuguese wall and the image brought that moment back in my memory. They sent a research team to find her and to get the full story of what she's gone through. Her name is Sharbay Gula.
Here are a few articles about her:
