I had the opportunity to talk with Ashraf Haidari ’01 briefly at the dinner to welcome the Whites to Washington. Ashraf works for his native Afghanistan at the Embassy in Washington. Over the last several years, he’s attained a masters degree, bought a home, become a father, and received promotions several times. Sounds like the typical Wabash man.

But the challenges for his country and their government are many and highly complex. Some would say overwhelming. However, five minutes talking to Ashraf makes me believe they are on the right path. He is so positive an so dedicated to making things better and he has a vision of the future that few in his place might see.

Ashraf Haidari – Some Little Giant!
