For me, being a Canadian means having a responsible civic disposition and contributing to social, political, religious and cultural endeavors.

I escaped religious persecution in Pakistan and have since been working in all aspects and mediums of social justice. I have been involved in youth development initiatives employing my expertise in communications and media to ensure we recalibrate ourselves to fully benefit from this wonderful country and society.
