Sher Bano

Seventeen-year-old Sher Bano from Pakistan spent last year as an exchange student in the suburbs of Chicago. Now that she's back home in Peshawar, she is guest-blogging for The New York Times in a series called " Report From a Pashtun Teen." She writes about life in Paskistan—covering a range of topics from the floods to arranged marriage to Facebook protests—all from the perspective of a teenager who has spent time in the West.
