Khan interviewed Myers for an Argus article and recalls Myers questions to him about his interests and the encouragement he received for choosing to pursue a double major. Khan recalls the influence Myers had on students interacting with different cultures on campus and abroad. Myers believed the purpose of the liberal arts was to give students an advantage in any field they chose. Khan relates a story of Myers' interest in Khan's upbringing in the U.S. and the differences he'd observed between Pakistani and American cultures and how he encouraged Khan to share his experiences with Myers' sons, whom Khan sometimes babysat for.
