The sessions opened a much-needed dialogue about how to be successful as a Muslim and an American, said Samina Mohammad, who oversees the youth program. Mohammad, 28, recently told a youth group how she secretly removed her head scarf on the way to school for two years because she loved her hair. Then, she attended a session for teens where, instead of lecturing about the importance of the head scarf, the imam compared a covered Muslim woman to a beautiful pearl hidden within an oyster. “It really hit home for me because I didn’t understand that beauty was such a part of it,” she said. “I was trying to find my identity and I realized, ‘Oh, he makes sense. That’s what I need to do.’ “.

DiCaprio attributes his success mostly to timing. He says we wouldn’t be having this conversation today if Robert De Niro hadn’t picked him from a few hundred young actors auditioning for “This Boy’s Life” in 1992. But from the start, he has kept his eye on the prize, typically opting for the challenge of a role, over the paycheck. (Right after “This Boy’s Life” and still in his teens, he chose “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?” — for which he earned his first Oscar nomination — over the mainstream kiddie comedy “Hocus Pocus.”).
