Corner of Change: Khalid Azizi

A brother of five and a father of six children, who served with the US military for more than two decades in Afghanistan. He finished high school in his hometown of Charikar Tajrobaway and graduated from RANA University with a degree in Computer Science. 

During the Russian time in Afghanistan, he lost his father as a result of war.  After that, he took responsibility for his family, including his siblings and mother, who were still in Afghanistan. Over two decades, he had a critical role in the community and is well known for it. Not only that, but he was also a role model to others.

Unfortunately, everything he and his children dreamed about fell apart after Aug 15, 2021.  As a result of his affiliation with United States,  he lost everything, and to save his life, they resettled in Georgetown from Afghanistan where they have hopes of a better future.
