Dramatic Changes in the Last Few Days.
Sultana’s friends in the U.S. have been busy trying to create conditions more favorable for her next student visa interview at the U.S. embassy in Kabul. This has included conversations with the Embassy through State Department contacts and also drawing media attention to her story.
NY Times, Washington Post, and More
Sultana was interviewed this week by columnists from the New York Times and the Washington Post. There may be an upcoming story in the San Francisco Chronicle as well featuring her and Sal Khan of Khan Academy. (Since her community in Afghanistan denied her an education, most of Sultana’s learning has been online through sites like Khan Academy.)
Twitter Campaign Called Off
Sultana’s next interview for her student visa is scheduled during the same week we had originally planned to launch the #LetSultanaLearn Twitter campaign. With these new developments, we’ve decided to call off the Twitter campaign. Please keep checking back for updates to this story.
