Sabika Sheik, from Karachi, Pakistan, arrived in Texas in August 2017. She was an exchange student, during the autumn 2017 through winter-spring 2018 academic terms at El Paso High School. The sponsor was the US State Department’s Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study Program.
She wanted to become a diplomat. She was scheduled to fly home in less than 3 weeks. Sadly, and so needlessly, she was shot to death by an American terrorist. Her body was sent home in a coffin.
At the time of his terrorism attack, the assailant, American-born Dimitrios Pagourtzis, was 17 years of age. Pagourtzis… carried a Remington 870 shotgun and a .38 caliber pistol and shot multiple people “with the intent of killing people,” – Quote from a CNN news website article.
“My heart drowns,” a quote by her father, Abdul Aziz Sheikh. May 23, 2018 article in The Guardian, UK
