My name is Rohina Kabir. I am a resident in the federal riding of Scarborough Southwest and I am a fourth-year student studying Politics and Governance at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario. I am a volunteer at the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture as a Toronto District School Board (TDSB) teacher’s assistant and mentor for refugee teens. I also work at the Diversity Institute at my university as a research assistant. I am currently doing my placement at Chrystia Freeland’s constituency office, who is the current Minister of Foreign Affairs and MP for University and Rosedale riding. My first-hand experiences of having to face poverty, gender inequality, lack of education facilities, and recent refugee issues inspired me to pursue a path in politics. As a visible minority woman, I want to have a role in Canadian politics so that I can work to dismantle the systems of inequalities that we currently have to face so that the future generations of girls and women can have easier access to opportunities.
My name is Kowmitha Satkunarajan. I'm 17 years old and I want to represent Ward 20 this year in City Hall! Here is a little bit about me.
I mainly volunteer at my local community center the West Scarborough Neighbourhood Community Center. I am currently on the Youth Council at the Center. There we plan various volunteering days out with community members and host various events throughout the year. Just recently we organized a climate change event and invited our local MPP Doly Begum to come and speak to the kids about one of the biggest challenges facing our generation today.
As a member of this Council, I will do my best to make sure the voices of Ward 20 is heard and make our concerns from education to transportation to climate change, etc, well known. If you have any questions or would like to get to know me better please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or dm me on Instagram (_kowmitha). I look forward to hearing from all of you!
