"Tasneem exemplifies the true meaning of academic and social citizenship. She took note of a faculty member who could benefit from moral support and positivity, taking it upon herself to reach out to our whole cohort and film student testimonials. She then edited this video into a final cut and presented it to one of professors at end of term. This allowed a forum for students to express their gratitude for the difficulties and growth that took shape in this professor's classroom, and was a major voluntary undertaking during a very busy academic time. Tasneem also makes use of powerful, personal stories in engaging with the class content. Her dry humour and fantastic wit always brightens my day! I am happy to call Tasneem a colleague and friend."

1) Why did you decide to go into nursing?
I want to embody social justice values in my daily work. Nursing involves complicated work within a space uniquely situated at the intersection of private lives and public policies. I accept the challenge of helping people navigate through this space, while ensuring they are respected, heard and can heal on their own terms. The fact that there will always remain an ethical and moral obligation to serve the most vulnerable people in this line of work fills me with hope and a sense of purpose.
2) Fun Fact:
When I was in grade 9, I met the Jonas Brothers in the Eaton Centre food court!!!
