Awatef Ibrahim, Parent Coordinator
Zone 126 would like to congratulate Long Island City High School Parent Coordinator, Awatef Ibrahim, for being named as a Women’s Forum/Macy’s Inc. Fellow. Her high achievement, having been selected as one of 10 women from over 500 applicants, has enabled her to receive grants through the Women’s Forum of New York’s Education Fund.
Mrs. Ibrahim is one of Long Island City High School’s amazing parent coordinators. Her role includes cultivating relationships with families and communicating the needs of families to the appropriate school staff for support.
Her passion for education stems not just from her work ethic, but also as a hard-working student. Ms. Ibrahim immigrated to the United States from Egypt at the age of four. She completed high school within 3 years and subsequently received a college acceptance. However, her family urged her to get married and return to Egypt. A decade and 3 beautiful children later, Ms. Ibrahim returned back to New York with her family. As the key English speaking parent of her family, she navigated through the ups and downs of the New York City school system… Her inspiring story continues here.
