As the Vice President Mississauga, I act as the official spokesperson and liaison for all UofT Mississauga Academy of Medicine (MAM) students, across all years. I advocate for MAM student needs, concerns, and inclusion within the UofT MD program by attending all MAM-related meetings with faculty and student leaders, including the monthly Mississauga Academy of Medicine Advisory Committee and Student Education Committee meetings. I am also working with faculty and students in founding a MAM equity, diversity, and inclusion committee to work from an anti-oppressive lens in reshaping our curriculum and shared spaces within the school and the greater community. I also work to create an open and welcoming environment for all MAM students by organizing social events, managing social media accounts, and contributing to the monthly MAM Events and Updates newsletter. Furthermore, I monitor and consult on the implementation of MAM inclusion bylaws.

About Me

Moving to Canada 8 years ago and growing up in 4 countries has made me passionate about the immigrant experience and its impact on health. I have an undergraduate degree from McMaster University in Kinesiology and completed my MHSc in Medical Physiology at the University of Toronto. My educational experiences have nurtured my interest in preventative medicine, specifically the use of diet and exercise as a means to protect against chronic illness. Outside of school, I enjoy swimming, biking, skating, and reading, so if you have book recommendations send them my way!
