Tonight at our weekly Farmers’ Market we had the pleasure to present Tafriha Islam with our 2018 Young Leaders Scholarship!
@tafrihaa is a model of engaged youth: the recent grad from Danforth Collegiate and Technical Institute has been a tutor for the last 4 years, created a Bengali school with her parents teaching young students to read and write in Bengali, and has volunteered with countless organizations and events including the Regent Park Film Festival, Sister2Sister, Regent Park Youth Ambassador, Art Heart, Artscape, and Sunday in the Park
In person, Tafriha radiates confidence, empathy and a fantastic wit. It was truly a pleasure to award her our annual scholarship and we can’t wait to see the amazing things she accomplishes as a student at The Schulich School of Business at York University
Special thanks to all our volunteers who helped organized our 80’s Dance Party fundraiser, and to all those who came out and danced the night away! Your support made this happen 🎉
