Aziza is (brace yourself) a Graduate Student at OISE, U of T. In her previous, non-student life, she taught English in Spain for two years, learned how to Salsa dance, and
finally got around to cooking decent meals.
In her first year of Grad school, she discovered the following things: a (genuine) smile goes a long way, awkward elevator silences can always be broken (it’s true!), and there is always someone whose coat is puffier than yours or who is carrying more bags
than you are. Also true.
