Letter to the Editor: A positive story on a gifted woman

Published 5:41 pm Friday, June 7, 2019

A big thank you to Chris Miller for the excellent, full-page article in Tuesday’s SNAP which featured Ayah Hajjar, the recent graduate of Gray Stone Day School. ( https://www.thesnaponline.com/2019/06/03/syrian-american-student-embraces-her-diversity-art-during-time-at-gray-stone/ )

Given the Islamophobia which frequently pervades our media, it was gratifying to read such a positive story about the accomplishments of this energetic, gifted young woman.

It also was fortuitous that the piece appeared on Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Thanks, Ayah, for being such a wonderful ambassador for your faith tradition, culture and language; your community wishes you the very best in your academic and professional journeys.

Eid Mubarak. (Happy festival.)
