ASU master’s student Nshwah Ahmad, 22, poses for a portrait outside of her parent’s restaurant in Mesa, Arizona, on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2017. She met there with media after ASU President Michael Crow wrote an op-ed for the Christian Science Monitor about the value of international students that featured a photo of her from her undergraduate graduation. Ahmad was born in Dearborn Heights, Michigan.
