Seventeen year old Shamim Amiri grew up in Bamyan, Afghanistan. She has been a student at the Berkshire Waldorf High School since the Fall of 2014.
For her Girl Scout Gold Award project Shamim has created a special six-session program called Learn Persian, which will meet at the library on Tuesdays from 6pm-7pm starting August 4 and running through September 8. All are welcome.
In the program, Shamim will introduce participants to the Persian language, including the alphabet, numbers and some basic phrases. She will also share her knowledge of Afghan culture and religion.
