Hello! My name is Ashwini and I’ll be blogging on behalf of the Centre for Community Partnerships! I’m in my third year specializing in Peace, Conflict and Justice studies with a double minor in Diaspora and Transnational studies and English! One fun fact about me is that I have lived in Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Yemen, New York, and Canada. My experiences have allowed me to observe and learn about poverty, gender inequality, equal access to education and climate change which has solidified my passion to mobilize youth into tangible action and become a lifelong advocate for these issues! Asides from advocacy work, in my spare time, you can always find me either on a hike or at my desk, writing short stories and poems. I’m extremely excited to highlight my experiences through the blog!
