Yesterday we welcomed guests at the Capitol for Illinois Muslim Action Day. Young people from across the state came to advocate for important issues for and beyond their community, and to learn about being involved in government policy. This annual event is organized by the Council of Islamic Organizations of Chicago (CIOGC). I was happy to meet Nour Abdelsalam from Chicago who is a senior at Islamic Foundation School.

At Islamic Foundation School, Nour was the vice president of National Honor Society and earned several awards from state and regional science fair based on her research. University of Illinois in Chicago bought her
research topic about the effects of microwave radiation on plants, bacteria, and fungus. She also participated in Students for Social Justice, Green Club and was part of the varsity soccer and volleyball teams. At Benedictine University, Nour plans to pursue a major in chemistry and a career in pharmacy. After undergrad, Nour plans to pursue her pharmacy program and attend pharmacy school at Midwestern University.
