Not knowing if she would be a finalist or not, Azhar Kadyrova applied for an opportunity to make a journey that would change her life forever.

Kadyrova is a foreign exchange student who applied to Future Leaders Exchange and ended up being one of the finalists to be approved. She came to America from Kyrgyzstan in September 2018 to explore a place that is much different from her own.
