State Representative Ammarah H.

Ammarah - North Carolina Student Rep Profile Image

“I choose to Be Strong in the hearts of those around me by radiating positivity through encouraging, supportive words and humor.”

-Ammarah

Why Ammarah H. was Nominated:

Ammarah is an 11th Grade student at Hillside High School. She has been here since her 9th grade year. She is a Muslim student and knows how to advocate for herself. Since starting here she has had to deal with people trying to be mean to her because she is different, but she has always stood up for herself. She started a Muslim club at the school and she did a documentary that she posted on social media, which showed the struggles of Muslim students at Hillside and in the US. I feel she is already a leader and doing things to bring about positive change in our community and school.
