I arrived in Toronto as a Jewish-Iranian immigrant when I was 12 years old.
Since then, I have worked hard to give back to this city which has given me so much. I have volunteered at Baycrest Centre, Lawyers Feed the Hungry, my children’s schools, in Israel and in Zimbabwe. I have served on the Board of Directors of Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre (for people with mental health and addiction challenges) and RESULTS Canada (to end poverty worldwide.)
I am a lawyer, a professor, a writer, a non-profit leader, and a life-long volunteer.
My young family and I have lived in the ward for fourteen years. My daughters have gone to Allenby Junior Public School, Associated Hebrew Day School, and Glenview Senior Public School.
I love our Eglinton-Lawrence neighbourhood and the people living here. I feel fortunate to call so many of you my neighbours and friends. As your Councillor, I will be present and engaged. I will listen to you and keep you informed.
I want to advocate for us, to serve the wonderful residents of our ward, and to make our great city of Toronto even better: more vibrant, more connected, more inclusive. I want to ensure that City Council makes smart, sensible decisions that improve the quality of life for all of us. I want to make sure that our decisions benefit us as well as for our children.
I invite you to find out more about me and the campaign issues, to sign up for our newsletter, and to help me make a Toronto a better city by volunteering on the campaign.
I would be honoured to represent you at city hall, and hope to have your support on October 22.
“I really wished there was something like that in NS 10 yes ago. Because if there was- and if consent and empathy and respect were being taught in schools in Nova Scotia- I honestly believe that I would still have my daughter with me today.” #onpoli #sexed https://t.co/okwDtF4NKw
