A Reintroduction

Hello, there. My name is Bashir, and I am a Somali-Canadian university student and active citizen. Those who know me are familiar with my work on issues such as refugee health and post-secondary accessibility. Many people who don’t know me personally might also be aware of my opinions, but may not understand the context of my perspective or my motivations for sharing them.
