FARMINGTON — Since joining the Miss Porter’s School student body as a sophomore last year, Hibba Meraay has already made her mark.

Meraay, an American Muslim of Syrian-Palestine descent, dreams of becoming a diplomat and helping promote peace in the Middle East. In her quiet yet determined way, through several initiatives she helped implement at the all-girl private school, the 16-year-old seems well on her way to achieving her goal.

The school already “had some interfaith panels, conversations around different faiths,” said Meraay. “From those events came the idea of having an actual club and raising awareness and to have more opportunity for students.”
