Yes there are many similarities between Haskell and Rust, and not just superficial ones, it runs pretty deep!

Do you know any project where I can practice rust on a personal level?, I mean something that I can show in the future

Sorry no nor really, I was involved in a project which used Rust long ago, but all I did was work through the Rust manual, the project fell by the wayside and I didn't actually build anything ... well I'm sure there's plenty of project ideas around if you google it a bit, using it on the client with Web Assembly seems popular, but Rust is of course also great as a server side language. I don't know, maybe try to build a chat server and client with it?

Well, the language I chose to learn in depth is haskell, I heard that the best way to learn in any science is by working on it, that is why I am looking for projects with which to practice 1st Haskell 2nd rust.

Well, like I said you could try to build a chat app, backend and frontend, that sounds like a nice challenge and should keep you off the street for some time, haha ... and maybe have a look at this link:
