Deceased Winnetka teen dedicated herself to change in Pakistan

Winnetka resident Sonia Shah was a "bright, enterprising and multilingual young person who traveled and studied around the world,” says her mother, Iram Shah. Sonia started the Kulsoom Foundation to build a school for girls in Pakistan but was killed in an auto accident last year before the school was completed. She was 18. For Global Activism, Sonia's mother Iram Shah and Sherezaad Anwar, a classmate and friend, tell Worldview about their mission to continue Sonia's work.
