Transcript MUSLIM IN AMERICA By Zahra Ahmed When Ruqia Alherz sat down in her chemistry class, she was more than a little surprised that a young man took a seat right next to her. Not used to being in such proximity to a strange man, she took careful precautions throughout the rest of the class to make as little movement as possible so as not to touch him "I had this idea in my head that I shouldn't be sitting next to a man," said Alherz, a 19-year-old freshman international student in UH's pre-pharmacy program. In Alherz's native city of Al-Ahsa, Saudi Arabia, men and women - save for immediate family and spouses - usually go about their business separately. Although casual mixing of men and women is typical and almost inevitable in the states, it proved to be one of many new experiences for Alherz and her two friends. For three young Saudi Arabian women, being international students at UH has brought about many challenges and obstacles. Malak Ajina, a 23-year-old communication disorders student and Riyadh native, moved to Houston when her husband was accepted into the residency program at Baylor College of Medicine. Ajina wears a hijab and admitted to initially having difficulty making new friends because some people are uncertain on how to approach her. "I think that some people are afraid," she said. "They don't know how to start a friendship with me." But, she said, people are friendlier in the U.S. than in Riyadh. Shahad Nawab, a 23-year-old senior and health education major, came to the states with her family from the city of Jeddah when they picked Texas Children's Hospital for her brother to undergo treatment for an illness. She said her experience in Houston has helped her mature. "The American lifestyle forces you to grow up and become more tolerant," she said. "I didn't want to leave my home at first but now, I don't regret it. Moving to America and going to such a diverse university has helped by giving me a new way of thinking - by allowing me to be more accepting." For all three students, UH's diversity among its student population has been a major factor in making their stay in a new city easier. According to a report by the International Student and Scholar Services Office, UH is home to more than 3,600 international students. News [81]
