The Final Revelation- A Young American Conversion to Islam

Posted by on Oct 16, 2012 in Journalism Today, Muslim American | 0 comments

This story was done about Stefni Richards an all American girl who was born in Fairmont, West Virginia.  Her freshman year she began to become interested in Islam from an Arabic exchange student she was friends with.  Last year, she converted to Islam which was a very large change in her life.  I documented the first stages of her transition.

By Jacqueline Delphin, Paige Carver, and Evan McCaffrey Originally on WVU WordPress Imagine a  warm night on High Street in Morgantown, W. Va., the notorious downtown party center of West Virginia University.  Students dressed for the night’s festivities walk along in packs towards their favorite destinations.  In the distance a commotion breaks the crowd as a street band dressed in full Jazz regalia dances and belts out the old Dixieland Jazz tune “When the Saints Go Marching In.” Some students move aside for the out of the ordinary sight, but many follow along and dance in appreciation. If you didn’t look closely at the group, you’d probably miss the man who seems of a different generation than the mostly twenty-something band members.  But then you would miss Larry Schwab, a young at heart 71-year-old trumpeter for the “High Street Jazz Band.”...
