Distinguished Finalist

Zoya Surani

Corpus Christi, Texas

Zoya Surani, 17, of Corpus Christi, Texas, a senior at Veterans Memorial High School, worked with her sisters to create “iConquer,” a health initiative that has reached more than 15,000 children in 35 schools with educational programming focused on diabetes, obesity and nutrition. Zoya and her sisters worked with a number of state and local organizations to implement their program, inspired by Corpus Christi’s 2010 designation by a national magazine as the “fattest city in America.”
