Sulaiman

My name is Sulaiman. I am 21 years old and am one of the founding members of the Watan Project. I currently reside in Orange County, California and am in my fourth year of studying business marketing at UC Riverside. Professionally, I have over 1.5 years of experience as a content marketer for my local Chamber of Commerce.
The Watan Project is something very near and dear to my heart because it is my way of connecting to the Afghan community and giving back. There has been an overwhelming outpour of encouraging messages and support for this project which shows me that people in the Afghan community truly want to help and support our Watan!
I want to dedicate my life to making a change, specifically helping those in need in Afghanistan. I believe that it is our responsibility, as the next generation of Afghans to uphold our culture and support Afghanistan. The Watan Project is my medium to do so.

Yasamine

Salam to everyone! I’m Yasamine, but you can call me Sabrina. I’m 17 and I’m still in high school. Also, team mantu. Sorry not sorry. Also, I’m the youngest ( and least serious and more fun) of both my founding partners. ⁣
Watan Project is really important to me because it allows me to give back to the community I love. I grew up in the U.S. But, a part of my heart is always with Afghanistan. Which may explain why I walk in school listening to Qataghani and the latest Fardin Faryad song while everyone is listening to Roddy Rich and Cardi B.
I hope that my fellow peers around me can see the step I am taking to help the unfortunate with whatever I can do. Even the little things help! Some people think they don’t have enough. But, there is always someone that has less than you and someone that wishes to have what you need.

Ali

Hi everyone, my name is Ali and I am a 18 year old Afghan-American from San Diego, California and about to begin my journey through college.
It all started a couple months ago when some friends and I decided to create Watan Project as a way to help aid people in Afghanistan. My goal and vision for this project is to create a community with strong support that can encourage people to come together and stay connected with their roots, while at the same time helping those who are not as fortunate as us.
Hopefully, we can urge people to join this movement to accomplish something positive because any help that we can give small or big will impact Afghanistan. Thanks for reading, we can’t wait to show you all what we have planned next!

Sameer

My name is Sameer. I am a 15 year old Afghan-American from San Diego, California. The way that I stay connected to my culture is through music. My love for playing the tabla for the last 12 years is unexplainable and it has allowed me to connect better with Afghanistan. What I hope to achieve with the Watan Project is to bring the Afghan community together as a strong and supportive group to stay connected with their culture and their Afghan roots.
One of Watan Project’s goals is to showcase the beautiful side of Afghanistan that the media does not always show. Media tends to only share the sad and dark side of Afghanistan rather than it’s beautiful culture and history. I hope the team and I could encourage people to come together to help our Watan.
