Trwska Ghafoor


Trwska Ghafoor, daughter of Shwan and Azhar Abdulsattar, is a sophomore at Ravenwood High School and this week’s Student of the Week.

She said that her academic career and learning are her biggest passions. “I get to test my strengths and weaknesses and learn something new every day,” Ghafoor said.

She said she is most proud of her high GPA, which she has been able to maintain throughout high school.

Her favorite classes at RHS are Chemistry and Algebra II. “They are the classes that intrigue me the most,” she said.

Mary Hawkens, one of Ghafoor’s teachers, said of her, “Trwske is amazing. New to RHS this year, Trwske has adapted beautifully in math. Not only does she take Algebra II Honors, but also taking Geometry at the same time. I’m so proud of her efforts and happy she is at RHS.”

Ghafoor said that her mother is her top role model in life. She said she looks up to her for her bravery and the way she challenges herself.

After graduating from RHS in a couple of years, she plans to attend Vanderbilt University to start her pursuit in becoming a neurosurgeon.
