Makai Aref visits Lakeside Academic School

Our very own Makai Aref was invited to Lakeside Academic School to speak to third and fourth grade students about her experience as a teacher and principal in Afghanistan. After attending the Afghan Women’s Center Book Build Launch Event and reading Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner the students were intrigued by the history of Afghanistan and inspired to learn more about life in Kabul as a teenager. Makai presented to the students what day-to-day life was like for a young adult in Afghanistan, and how that has changed over the years. It was a wonderful opportunity to develop the children’s understanding of a different culture and provide them with the opportunity to ask questions. The children were very interested and excited!
