Mohammed H. Anees, a teaching assistant at the University of Georgia, would seem to have an auspicious name: in his mother tongue Persian, the name Anees means “friend.” But in Afghanistan, the Muslim-dominated country where he grew up, being a friend was not always easy, especially across religious lines. “I am a Muslim, but my fellow-countrymen do not see me as one if I make friends with people belong to other faith.” That was one reason why Anees decided to move to the United States. He applied for a Fulbright scholarship in 2011 in order to study in the United States. His application was approved and he arrived in Georgia last year at the age of 26.
