Afghan Special Immigrant Visa holder Naimatullah Sultani, 27, a workforce development specialist with Lao Family Community Development Inc. and a social science and business administration student at American River College, studies in the bedroom he shares with another visa holder on Oct. 30 in Sacramento. Sultani worries about keeping up his 4.0 grade-point average and juggling his job helping other Afghan refugees get jobs. He says he studies in the bedroom to give his roommate Ajmal Shahab, 26, privacy to study in the living room and kitchen area of the two-room apartment.
