comment The respective functions of two occurrences of “as” in a sentence
Since you have now crossposted this on English Language Learners (you were probably not aware that SE dislikes cross-postings between SE sites), I have invited the ELU moderators to 'migrate' this question with its answers, and the ELL moderators to delete the question there.
