Arezow is thrilled to be back in North Texas after years away from family and friends. Her family is originally from Afghanistan, and escaped Kabul after the Russian invasion when Arezow was just 7 years old.

After years of living with extended family in Pakistan, and later in a refugee camp in Germany, Arezow moved to North Texas as a teenager. Although she did not speak English when she arrived, she gradually learned the language by studying voraciously and by watching American television!

Arezow soon grew to love her adopted home and graduated from high school in Plano. She went on to study journalism at the University of Texas in Austin and began her television news career in Corpus Christi, and later Austin.

In 2005, Arezow had the opportunity to spend a week in Afghanistan, embedded with soldiers deployed with the Texas Army National Guard. She filed an award-winning series of reports on the experience, as well as a half-hour special. It remains one of the most memorable assignments of her career.
