“When I was 18 years old I left my home in Morocco to escape a marriage my mother had arranged between me and a man much older. After arriving in America I was kicked out of my new home when my father realized I wasn’t interested in living a strict Muslim lifestyle. I had no friends, spoke no English and became homeless. But I was motivated and worked hard.
My life went from waiting for a truck in front of 7-11 for labor jobs, to sales for a home decorating company, to becoming a firefighter for Fairfax County, Virginia, to a career as a professional mixed martial arts fighter.
Capital became my family. They supported me, pushed me and trained me to achieve my potential! I am forever grateful for this community.”
