retake your sat. you aren't a minority. being paralingual is what you should emphasize on your application.

she is a minority...just not a urm (underreprented minority) she could emphasize, however, her different cultural background. colleges both want to raise admit #'s for urm and create a diverse class. she definatly has a case for the latter.

yes, but there are so many qualified south asian students that she won't have any advantage.

Not enough info, Hitu. And you are taking your tests awfully early. Do bear in mind that you would probably do better as you mature and you are putting yourself in the position where you may be taking the exams too many times. Why would you be taking the SAT2s in the middle of the year? All the schools I know recommend the SAT1 in spring of junior year with the SAT2s and the end of the year. Unless you are being tutored in the subject or studying independently, it may not be to your advantage to do this.
You have an attractive set of academic interests particularly the Arabic language. And your list of schools looks good to me. Are you considering engineering? Female engineers are always wanted. But the math courses you take and math scores count heavily for engineering schools.
Talk to your counselor about the timing of your tests. I think you are starting a little too early. The few kids I personally know who did this did not do as well as those who waited.
