Here’s a story from The Oregonian about OSU student Mohammed Farhad who is studying for his biology degree:
Farhad wanted to go to college in the U.S. Ultimately, he said, he wanted to become a doctor, return to Afghanistan and help people who had no access to medical treatment.
In September, Farhad began his junior year at Oregon State University. In addition to scholarships and his work income, Farhad visits schools and churches, “where I talk about Afghanistan, its people and culture and their problems.”
