The ambition to make a difference is a large part of who Khan is. Khan became an eagle scout at the age of 16. His final project was painting a homeless shelter and organizing a community-wide food drive. “I saw kids running out to donate a single can,” he recalled. Even if it was a single can, it meant the entire community was coming together for something.” This is also what attracted him to TCOP. After googling the school, he saw a picture of a student doing volunteer work in India. “I wanted to be part of a school that supports you and gives you the opportunity to help out around the world.”

Fun Fact: Khan is a die-hard hockey fan. Favorite team? Washington Capitals, though he hopes to take in some Ranger and Islander games while he’s here.
