Humans of Kabul

  1. "Why did you decide to stay in Afghanistan to go to university, when you could have studied in the U.S. on a scholarship?"
    "This is Afghanistan and I am an Afghan - I feel like not all of us should leave! I was happy to get a scholarship from an American university, but it was a dream come true when I received a full scholarship from a private Afghan university. I believe that there is so much I can learn and do if I am in Afghanistan. I can volunteer, I can pass on what I learn, I can be an activist, I can protect rights, I can vote, I can develop a business, I can make the unheard voice heard … and so much more!"
  2. "The happiest day of my life was when the Taliban left Kabul. I came out of my house and there were Afghan soldiers on the streets keeping the peace."
  3. "So what is the best part about the zoo?" 
    "I work for the Environmental Protection Agency of Afghanistan, so I want my children to have the chance to learn about the animals." 
  4. "What advice do you have for parents?"
    "I advise all parents to give their children education. Do not let them work for money when they are young."
  5. “So, can you tell me what you’re doing here?”
    “This bike riding club is to encourage girls to ride here in Kabul. There are so many girls that won’t bike because they think that the culture won’t allow for it, and so they have to walk for long distances instead. Also, there’s not a lot of sports facilities for women, so biking is a great option to exercise.”
  6. Little humans of Kabul. They love that lion statue at the Kabul Zoo …
  7. "What’s your favorite part about flying kites?
    "Fighting other kites!"
  8. "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
    "A journalist. Like my mom."

I am sure you are as pretty as her, or even more. :)

You can only expect a ‘faceless’ person to compliment a face they haven’t seen before.

Are you the girl in your icon?

No.
