What We Say: Tamim Ansary's response to the 9/11 attacks sparked a worldwide discussion. He shares his personal experience of being caught between two vastly different worlds – Islam and the secular West. Ansary's father was from Afghanistan and his mother was American. His honest expression has become an inspiration for his generation and beyond as he continues to be a voice for those struggling to reconcile their different worlds and resonates with hope for a brighter future.

What They Say: "There are many lives now in our melted world as complicated as Tamim Ansary's. The wonder is that this son of Afghanistan and America moves between the competing pronouns of his life with a graceful pen; he is never less than curious and generous toward the various chapters of his life that claim him" - Richard Rodriguez
