Artist Statement

"I am so scared of the Taliban, because I am a girl. I heard and saw Taliban do bad things to women, but I prayed for me and my family to not be hurt by the violent men. I pray that we are safe in the United States now." - Ana Mac Naught

Bakhtullah Fnu is a 2nd grader at the New Neighbor School in Houston, Texas. He moved from Afghanistan in Summer 2016. His artwork is inspired by his fears of the Taliban. It was not uncommon for him to see these strangers do bad things in his community.
