Tonight (September 13), Beyoncé, JAY-Z, and DJ Khaled made their way to the Big Easy. During DJ Khaled's set, he announced the New Orleans winner of the OTR II Scholarship! Ghaffar-Ibn Hayman (17) is a senior at the International High School of New Orleans. He's been a part of the Club for two years, after his mentor suggested he join the Club to connect with other students and stay active. Ghaffar took leadership roles in peer assistance and community service projects to help the other youth in the program. He makes time to participate in all of the tee activities and has been integral in recruiting more teens from the city to join the Club.


Ghaffar has hopes of attending the University of California-Davis or Cornell University, to become a veterinarian. See his reaction to receiving the scholarship below!
