From organizing the first Islam Awareness Week at The Lawrenceville School to leading a symposium for Muslim youths to help them bridge the divide between Islam and American society, Shaezmina Khan has worked hard to change the way Western society views Muslims. For her efforts, Shaezmina, who is a student at The Lawrenceville School, was recently honored with a certificate of accomplishment from the Princeton Prize in Race Relations of Central and Southern New Jersey. The awards program, sponsored by Princeton University, recognizes students who have worked to close the gap between the races.
