I am an organizer and advocate working with underserved communities, specifically refugees and refugee claimants. I connect with families all across the GTA and work primarily in the Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park area.

I advocate for residents and agency employees. I coordinate a resident-lead group called Engaged Communities that focuses on youth development, mobilizing and amplifying community voices, particularly youth and newcomer voices. I am also a caregiver for my mom who has an autoimmune brain condition. This has inspired me to advocate for caregivers too.
