“There are always cheerleaders who win and popular girls, so I was very surprised it was me, being a hijabi,” Shahin said.
“It was a dream come true,” she added.
Shahin works at a clothing store in Paramus and she’s been shattering long-held views about Muslims but remains true to her religious traditions.

The “Best Dressed” vote also shows how tolerance and acceptance have increased at the school which boasts a diverse population of students including 52 percent Hispanic, 35 % white, 8 % Asian, and 5 % black, according to state records.
Lindsey Cinque, a French teacher who is a yearbook and senior class adviser, said, “Shahin’s award showed that students can look beyond labels to honor someone’s accomplishment.”
Lindsey Cinque announced the news to Shahin in class, adding, “In a class of 800 people, it’s a huge honor that they picked her.”
Also of interest is that the best-dressed male, Abraham Zeidan, also happens to be Muslim. Although Shahin was surprised at being picked for the award, Cinque said that she would always get complimented on her clothes by other students.
Shahin blends traditional style with modern clothes perfectly well, wearing long sleeves and pants with trendy teenage clothes from stores like Forever 21.
