  • Haverhill High School welcomes Soha Yawar- A YES Exchange Student from Pakistan

    Haverhill High School is proud to host Soha Yawar, a 15 year old student from Doha, Pakistan. She is here for a year on the US Department of State Youth Exchange and Study (YES) program. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs (ECA) to provide scholarships for high school students from countries with significant Muslim populations to study for one academic year in the U.S.. Soha is being hosted by Amy and Paul Miller from Haverhill.

    As a young woman, and one of 5 children, she is very aware of the good fortune and future opportunities that participating on an exchange can bring. Of the 30,000 students who applied, only 108 were chosen to participate in the YES Program. After high school, Soha plans to apply to Harvard University and study dentistry. She is very bright and outgoing by nature and we wish her well!

    If you see Soha in school or around town, please give her a warm welcome: Assalam-O-Alaikum- or “Peace be upon you”.
