About This Author

Zaki spent Fall '06 in Afghanistan as a French teacher & Foreign Correspondent for Newsvine. He taught French (high-school level) at the French Cultural Center in Kabul, Afghanistan for 3 months. During his downtime, he wrote articles and took photos which he published on his column.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Persian & Economic Development Studies. English aside, I am fluent in French and I speak Dari conversationally.

I believe strongly in diplomacy because unlike worrying about next year I also like to worry about the next decade. While we all debate and whine at each others, children are wondering what is going on, and why their parents won't let them all play together because of religion or ethnicity.
