Princess Zahra and her daughter, Miss Sara Boyden, arrived in Houston, Texas, earlier today at the invitation of the Asia Society Texas Center. Princess Zahra is being honoured with the Huffington Award at the annual Award Dinner being held later tonight. 

She will be recognised for her outstanding contributions that have furthered international understanding, uplifted lives, and advanced health and education on a global scale through her work with the Aga Khan Development Network.
Earlier in the day, as a mark of great respect, proclamations were received from congressional leadership, the City of Sugar Land, and Mayor Sylvester Turner of the City of Houston. Mayor Turner proclaimed 10 October 2019 as Princess Zahra Aga Khan Day.
