Atif Moon was born in 1985 with a late stage cancer of the spinal cord and had little chance of survival. What stayed with the Moon family and planted the seed that grew into CFGU was the team of doctors, a group of diverse individuals, some were Christians; some Hindus, some Jews and some Muslims. All of them worked very hard to save Atif’s life. They did not ask what religion Atif was, but rather, how could they work together to save his life. Their common goal of saving a life and serving humanity trumped any cultural or religious differences they may have had. He is the co-founder and the inspiration behind the Center for Global Understanding.

Atif graduated from UCLA with a BA in Economics and MA in Sports Management from California State University, Long Beach.. He interned at the White House in 2006. He has been selected as "2009 Ten Outstanding Young Americans" by the United States Junior Chamber and "2008 Outstanding Young Californians" by California Junior Chamber, also known as California Jaycees. He is pursuing a career in Sports Marketing.
