Munira Khalif, a high school senior at Minnesota’s Mounds Park Academy, has a pretty big decision ahead of her. The star student recently received acceptance letters to all 8 Ivy League schools, as well as Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Minnesota.

Khalif, who is passionate about the importance of education for girls, especially in East Africa, is also the founder of her school’s Social Consciousness Club.

“Munira has thrived in MPA’s rigorous educational environment, where we challenge students to be intellectually curious and confident communicators,” said Randy Comfort, MPA’s upper school director. “She already is making a difference in communities across the globe, and I know she is ready to embrace the challenges that arise in our constantly changing world.”

Munira Khalif has less than a month to make her big decision, in order to meet a May 1st deadline. She isn’t set on a school yet, but definitely knows that she wants to major in Political Science.

“I was very surprised. The best part for me was being able to call family members on the phone and to hear their excitement,” said Khalilf. “This was truly a blessing from God. To me this news is reflective of the support and encouragement of my family, my school and my community.”
