I have worked with young people from around the world since 2005. Most of my students come from countries with a significant Muslim population and former Soviet Union countries. I have supervised, lived with and/or placed students from Afghanistan, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Turkey, Turkmenistan, India, Pakistan, Russia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, South Korea, Indonesia, Philippines, Serbia, Thailand, Ukraine, Armenia, Zimbabwe, Tunisia and Kosovo. I am passionate about helping our human family to understand each other better... to help eliminate myths and misconceptions about our brothers and sisters from different faiths, countries, tribes, races, etc. My passions include: Cross-cultural exchanges, Afghanistan, reading, writing, photography, and youth.
Tolerance and mutual-understanding across the globe.
Sponsors for impoverished Afghan youth to learn English, attend private schools, stop being child laborers, and other educational services.
I founded an initiative, the ROYA Mentorship Program, supporting nearly 400 impoverished Afghan youth. https://roya-mentorship-program.com
