After meetings students from Iraq at a summer peace-building program, Hannah created NewView (www.newviewus.org), a non-profit, web-based forum designed to promote cultural awareness between high school students in the United States and the Middle East. NewView started in 2010 with 30 students from Yarmouth and 30 from Iraq, and has grown to over 150 participants. In her application, Hannah said her passion was “peace building with the goal of breaking down stereotypes and promoting tolerance and acceptance of cultural diversity through communication, understanding and friendship.”
