Hi! I am Manzura, a second-year master’s student in English Literature. I dedicate most of my time to catching up on all the books that I wish to read before I die.

If you have any books to recommend from your culture or any questions about the university, feel free to stop by and have a chat! I look forward to meeting you all.

Hello, everyone. I’m Yasmeen! Currently, I’m in my third year studying Global Health and hopefully minoring in Philosophy. In short, my interests are like day and night: they tend to range from being really social and proactive within my communities to hibernating in my room and binging kdramas. I love talking every chance I get which is why I enjoy public speaking, teaching, voice acting, and having conversations with the people around me. Writing is also one of my favourite passions, but I guess you could say I’m a writer with constant writer’s block. All in all, one thing is for sure : cats, children, and mangos will always be a constant in my life no matter how old I get. If you ever see me around, come say hi! We may live our lives separately but we are more connected than we think. I look forward to meeting you 🙂
