Hi everyone!

My name is Atira. I am an international student from Malaysia, and I come from Chinese and Indian descent. I am currently a first-year student at SFU, enrolled in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.

I am a graduate of the IB Diploma Programme and decided to come to Canada for university to challenge myself in a new environment. I did debate and public speaking in high school, and in my final year of the IB Diploma Programme I co-organised a TEDxYouth event for my school community. I have worked in several different organisations, including restaurants, NGOs and medical labs, and I am looking forward to what the future holds for me. I am passionate about new ideas and collective learning, and I am excited to help others achieve their goals.

The things that bring me the most joy in life are food, art and literature, though I am always willing to try something new. I enjoy drawing in my free time as well as watching TV.

I look forward to meeting you!
