    Q: Why do you want to run for office? (150 words or less)
    A: I am a community developer at heart. I love working with communities to understand and take action to solve problems. Over the past four years I have been working towards completing my doctorate and I am passionate about my topic. I am researching the connection between poverty and education, and the systemic and institutional barriers that disadvantage youth who live in low-income neighbourhoods in school. Wanting to return to community development work, as well as translating what I have learned through my academic work about inclusion and intersectionality into practice are the major reasons I have decided to run for city council. In addition, in at least the last three elections a woman-identifying candidate has not run for the city council seat in Ward 5, Waterloo. In future elections, I will actively support increasing representation of candidates even further.

    A: Over the last ten years, I have consistently been involved in initiatives, projects, programs and organizations that aim to better the lives of students, not only in Waterloo Region, but across the country. After being chosen as one of ten women to receive the Province of Ontario’s Leading Women, Building Communities award for the riding of Kitchener-Waterloo in 2018, I knew it was time to use the skills that I’ve gained from my experience in educational institutions, advocacy and equity roles to support students in the Waterloo Region. As a woman of colour, who is the child of an immigrant, with a variety of invisible and visible marginalizations, I am passionate about equity in education. If elected to be a Trustee for the Waterloo Region District School Board, I promise to tirelessly work to ensure that every student in Waterloo Region is supported and given the tools that they need to have a positive and successful educational journey.
