Shraddha Timalsina

My name is Shraddha Timalsina and I use she and her pronouns. I am the current First Year Equity Coordinator in NUS alongside Michela. I am also on the Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Indigenous Reconciliation (EDIIR) Standing Committee at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing. 

I wanted to run for the 2nd year Equity Coordinator position because I really enjoyed my role this year. Some of the events we organized were Holiday Clothing and Food Drive and a speaker’s panel with guest speakers from the Canadian Black Nurses’ Alliance. I am passionate about Equity, Diversity, Inclusivity and Mental Health; the subject is close to my heart as a queer, immigrant activist. 

As a 2nd year Equity Coordinator, I hope to continue to support Black, Indigenous, Queer, Trans students and students of colour in being successful in the program. My plans are to host study sessions to help folks succeed and art events to promote mental well-being. I look forward to working with the university and professors to promote equity and inclusion 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 their concerns to the attention of the university.
