The principal of the 16-year-old Arab Israeli teenager Nadine Awad, who was killed alongside her father in a Hamas rocket attack early this morning outside Lod, remembers her student as a “talented girl” who wanted to change the world.
“I know it sounds like a cliché and they always say that the best people are the ones who lose their lives, but Nadine really was a very, very special girl,” her principal Shirin Natur Hafi told the Reshet Bet radio station.
“She was in 10th grade, studying in the biology-chemistry track. She had dreams of changing the world. She was such a special girl, such a talented girl. She wanted to conquer the world,” Hafi said of her student.
According to Hafi, principal of Lod’s Ort school, Awad was involved in a number of science-related and social projects with Jewish schools in the area and with schools in America and planned to participate in a biomedical studies program through Petah Tikva’s Schneider Medical Center.
