Congratulations To Our Sister in Islam Zainub Dhanani, Valedictorian

Zainub Dhanani, valedictorian:


If ever one was looking for the "total package," this young scholar more than fits the bill. Zainub maintains a low-key, reserved, mild-mannered confidence. She is respectful and engaging with a great deal of moral fortitude; and yet, she is always striving to be better. Zainub has an excellent work ethic and impeccable organizational skills. She is consistently prepared and focused in class, setting an example for her peers and helping to establish a productive tone during each and every lesson.

Zainub is heavily committed to community service. For example, she was founder and co-president of the World Relief Club and Jamie Allen Food Distribution here at Lovett. She has also worked with a Somalian Refugee Help Group and the Emory Johns Creek Hospital Summer VolunTEEN Program. In addition, Zainub's consciousness and sensitivity drives her passionate commitment to Lovett's sustainability efforts, as well. She was co-president of the Upper School Green Team and was involved in four Green Team committees: the Materials Committee, the Procurement Committee, the Publicity Committee, and the Transportation Committee. In addition, with very little instruction, Zainub was able to purchase all the materials and assemble a Living Machine (which cleans water using natural, organic processes) in one of Lovett's science laboratories last year. When asked how she was able to build a working model with so little guidance, Zainub simply said, "I just figured it out."

Academically, Zainub is the best that Lovett has to offer from the class of 2012. But more importantly, her strengths revolve around her passion and desire to go beyond what is required. Zainub will attend Harvard in the fall.

Story From AJC: 

Senior recovers from illness to perform a 'super' juggling act


Zainub Dhanani is known as the "superwoman" of her graduating class at Lovett School.

The 18-year-old was a top contender for valedictorian when in January an autoimmune illness threatened her health and chance at the title. She stayed home ill and weak for two months, returning in March with a lofty goal some believed was impossible.

Dhanani vowed to complete three months of homework, her current assignments and those for January and February, before the March 29 cut off to be considered for valedictorian.

"The principal and academic dean said, ‘She would have to be a real superwoman to do that,'" her mother, Dilshad Dhanani of Duluth recalled.

Teachers were willing to lighten her load. But Dhanini didn't want any shortcuts. She set up a study schedule that gave her time devoted to old and new homework. Then, came the heavy-lifting. Dhanini crammed three science research lab studies into a single day and completed about four major assessments each week, including essays, projects and quizzes.

Spring break didn't even stop her. She was testing at Lovett instead of resting on a beach. The workload was overwhelming at times.

"It pushed me to see how much I can handle and made me closer to God," she said.

Dhanini met her deadline.

"She completed every graded assignment, quiz, test and lab," her mother beamed.

She graduated Sunday with more than a 4.0 GPA and the valedictorian title, breezing through nine Advanced Placement (AP) classes.

“Honestly, it was a lot of work,” she said. “I was able to manage it because I had such a great support system. I didn’t want to see all of the work I had done my four years at Lovett suffer because of my last segment of high school. I am one of those people who pushes themselves to be the best they can be."

Dhanani will attend Harvard University, where she says her academic juggling act will pay off.
