His first encounters with English books were at AUI-S. He was reading Andrew Ross Sorkin's Too Big to Fail. He always looked to see new changes in the great world of business. He watched Al Jazeera's Counting the Cost, and spoke to his friends about it next day.
He always wanted to know about business but there was no one to help.
Patrick Cline became his Introduction to Business teacher, and he got the idea.
Peshawa Ahmed, a 22 year-old AUI-S student originally from Halabja, decided to start a Business Club.
" Our main purpose is to help students become more involved in business activities so that they can gain greater understanding of what they study and can practically apply what they have learned in the classroom," wrote Peshawa in his mission statement given to Dashnye Daloye, Student Affairs director

Other economics professors have promised to help the club, said Peshawa, especially Dr. Joshua Hill.
Peshawa has "great projects" in mind for the near future.
"We will bring experts to speak about business to AUI-S students, and help those who are pursuing internship and employment opportunities," he said
AUI-S Business Club will hold its first meeting on Wednesday, Jan 19, 2011.
