first year equity coordinator
My name is Shraddha Timalsina and I use she and they pronouns. I was born and raised in Nepal and moved to Canada in 2015. I studied Life Sciences and Psychology at Queen’s and took a gap year before coming to University of Toronto. My hobbies include reading, making art and cooking. I also attend dance class and yoga whenever I can.
I wanted to run for the Equity Coordinator position because I want to be a part of the NUS family. I was really inspired seeing how all worked well together during orientation. It also looked like a lot of fun and a great way to meet people. I am passionate about Equity, Diversity, Inclusivity and Mental Health; the subject is close to my heart as a queer, immigrant activist. As an equity coordinator, I hope to be a friend to my cohort and support them in any way I can. I especially want to support Black, Indigenous, Queer, Trans students and students of colour in being successful in the program. I want to work with my cohort to host study sessions to help folks succeed or art events to promote mental well-being. I look forward to working with the university and professors to promote EDI for current and future U of T students. Most importantly, I look forward to learning from my fellow classmates on how I can make the program more equitable and bring them to the attention of the university.
