… the Afghan TV presenter who was once administrative advisor to the Office of the President of Afghanistan
Mustafa is no stranger to the Afghan community. Mustafa, a successful presenter with Afghan Javan Television, always manages to leave a great impression for his listeners, his wit remaining on the minds on his audience long after the show is over. “To be a successful presenter, you need to be a good listener, knowing how to multi-task, take direction, and staying calm when the situation seems fraught with agitation,” he says.
Born in Kabul, Afghanistan, Mustafa got his executive master’s degree in Business Administration from Washington University, USA. He has taught the English language and computer programs for various institutes in Afghanistan. He has led and managed key portfolios in government and non-government sectors in Afghanistan. He has worked for the United Nations, International Organization for Migration and United States Agency for International Development.
In his 13 years of services, Mustafa has been awarded with several medals, appreciations and recognition letters by the former president of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai and late father of the nation King Mohammad Zahir Shah. In his last position in Afghanistan, he served as the administrative advisor to the Office of the President of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan for eight years before moving to Canada. Since 2011, he has worked with well-reputed NGOs like COSTI Immigration Services and Toronto Intergenerational partnerships in senior management positions.
In addition, Mustafa also coordinates Afghan events in Toronto, Canada.
