Youssef Wardani never considered himself an activist.
He’s a fairly soft-spoken software engineer. He’s very organized and believes everything should have a plan from start to finish.
Activism for him was a sudden evolution sparked by a Broward teacher who called his 14-year-old son a "raghead Taliban” and the bureaucracy of a school system he felt ignored him when he demanded accountability.
His son, Deyab-Houssein Wardani, 14, is a ninth grader at Cypress Bay High School in Weston. Everyone calls him D.H.
