Muslim High School Student Symposium

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

 Students from seven schools gathered at St. Christopher's for the inaugural Muslim High School Student Symposium, organized by St. Christopher's student and ASSIST Scholar Mohamed Ismacil and St. Catherine's students Nawal Abbasi and Suha Minai.

The keynote speakers, state Assistant Attorney General Mona Siddiqui and young entrepreneur Murtaza Khan, spoke to the group about what it's like to be Muslim on U.S. campuses and about how to find their voice.  Mohamed, Nawal, and Suha also joined Ms. Siddiqui and Mr. Khan on a panel that discussed questions from attendees on the topic Everything you Wanted to Know about Islam but were Afraid to Ask. The symposium will be hosted next year by St. Catherine's School.
