Kindness Week has made a difference in more students and teachers than she realizes. Nafisa put hours into organizing and creating the posters, post-it notes, the bathroom notes, creating kind messages for the Easter eggs, designing a t-shirt, etc. Nafisa has shown great leadership with Kindness Week and Spirit Week when Student Council members had to resign. She picked up the slack when Student Council was down officers with grace and leading by example. Nafisa is friendly, open and inviting to every person in this building; showing true characteristics of a leader and Student Council President. Nafisa truly exemplified great character and leadership.” “Nafisa Ibrahim (along with Student Government Advisor Alison Cooke) came up with the idea of celebrating Kindness Week at our school and has implemented it wonderfully. She really took the ball and ran with it. She devoted many hours outside of school to get things ready for the surprise Monday morning Kick-off. She exemplifies awesome character and truly leads by example.” The Cazenovia Lions Club is pleased to honor Nafisa for her leadership and service to the school.
