Milad’s tale in his own words: From Afghanistan to Potomac

Arielle Kouyoumdjian, Co-Managing Editor

An eye opening interview with Milad Yaqouby, Potomac’s newest  sophomore, and a refugee from Afghanistan. A soccer whiz, video-game collector, anime buff, and computer coder. Learn what it’s like to attend school despite bomb threats from the Taliban; to leave behind a life you’ve led for 16 years, to find hope and humor amidst chaos. At once disturbing and uplifting, Milad’s tale of resilience is both deeply unfamiliar, yet undeniably relatable.
