Wasima Shinwari (Russell Sage College 2016) received the award for her outstanding academic accomplishments in biology and for her innovative extracurricular work as co-founder of the Speech Therapy Project in Afghanistan.

 

 

Madiha Samadi (University of Pennsylvania 2017) received the award for her excellent academic accomplishments in economics and statistics as well as her outstanding summer internship at Afghanistan Holding Group and as a fellow at the Penn Perry World House in Philadelphia.
