International Student Engagement Team
Hey all! I am a third-year Biology and Psychology double major student at York. I am a part of the YI International Student Engagement team. I really like being in nature, hiking, doing yoga and binge-watching friends. If you ever want to talk about Phoebe or Joey, I’m your person! I am also fond of travelling and exploring new places and getting to know different cultures. Along with the YI team I hope to facilitate and support international student transition to University. Want to get involved on campus or have a question, please don’t hesitate to contact us:)
I am Roshali and I am a Kinesiology and Health Science student at York University. Some of my hobbies include reading, writing, and baking. I love being a part of York International because it gives me the opportunity to connect with people from many cultural backgrounds. Also, as a former international student myself, I am delighted to give back to the international student community.
Global Peer Program Team
Hi! I'm a mature student in York's KINE program. As a mature student, I didn't go through an easy transition to YorkU. With many ups and downs along the way. I learned that it's best to reach out to your peers for help. That is why I joined the Global Peer Program, to connect students and help them make use of campus resources. I can't wait to learn more about the diverse cultures of international students at York International. In my spare time, I love cooking (lots of it!) and going hiking.
If I were a movie I would be Lala Land - witty, colourful and all about dancing on the street! I was born and raised in Venice, Italy, which makes me an unbeatable foodie and a low-key incurable romantic. Toronto has been my home for the past few years but I am always looking for new things to learn, see and experience. This semester I am excited to work with York International and meet (or e-meet) folks that, like me, still get off at an unusual subway stop and think "wow, that restaurant is calling my name!".
Hi! My name is Tram and I'm entering my second year of Commerce program. I have a positive mindset and enjoy getting outdoors to explore new things. I'm very excited to be a part of Y.I. team this year. I look forward to connecting with students globally no matter where they are or where they come from.
Virtual Community Engagement Team
I am an international student from Mumbai. I enjoy reading, music and theatre. I love meeting new people and learning about new cultures.
Hello! My name is Stephanie and I’m a 4th-year student at York University. I love to go travel to different countries and make friends. Also want to bake some cakes/bread when I’m free. I am the Student Coordinator for Virtual Community Engagement this Fall/Winter 20-21 academic year. I’m very excited to be a part of York International!
Learning Skills Peer
Hello everyone! Nice to meet you here! My role is to help international students have a better transition into university life. I love to watch romantic movies and dramas in my free time. I strongly recommend the shows "Friends" and "How I Met Your Mom." I love to meet new people and talk to them! So feel free to reach out! I hope you have a good day!
Marketing & Communications Team
Hello! I'm in the York/Sheridan Design program and help with the Y.I. website! I enjoy concerts, listening to music, sushi and all forms of art. Recently, I have been spending a lot of my free time digital drawing and enjoying nature. I love learning new things about other cultures and I look forward to helping people connect! :)
Hi! Im Andy. I was born and raised in Vietnam, and fell in love with Toronto💜 I like playing sports, hip hop and rapping. I am excited to meet everyone! I hope we all have a great year at York University! Cheers! 🔥
Glad to meet you all✨ I'm Daye and my name is pronounced as 'thai-yeah':) I'm a third-year student in the York/Sheridan Design program and I'll be helping York International for creating graphic materials starting Fall 2020. Since YI is where I started my life at York, this is such an exciting and meaningful opportunity for me. I really look forward to connecting with our team as well! (Photo credit to our teammate Sam📸)
Hi! My name's Sam and I'm going to be entering my third year of the York-Sheridan Design program this September. I have an interest in fine arts and like to spend my time taking photos as well, so if you ever need any portraits taken let me know! 😊 I'm Korean but don't speak Korean very well, so I took an elementary Korean course over the summer.
Hi everyone! I'm Zainab. I'm currently in my third year studying Design at York University and Sheridan College. I'm from Sri Lanka and I speak Tamil, and although I am fluent at speaking, I would love to learn how to read and write in it one day! When I'm not designing, I enjoy taking daily walks around my neighborhood while listening to Taylor Swift. I also have recently become addicted to making lattes this quarantine (yum). Looking forward to working with everyone at York International and creating a wonderful web experience here.
Go Global Team
Hello! My name is Sanam Goklani, I am an international student from Chile and I came to Canada 4 years ago to pursue my undergrad at York. My favourite things to do are working out, dancing and baking. I also love meeting new people and learning more about their culture. I am very excited to be part of York International.
Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be part of the York International team. I'm originally a western Canada girl, but Toronto has 100% stolen my heart. Besides my passion for dance, I love travelling. I have been lucky enough to see Europe in various places, but I think my favourite place I have ever been was Dubai in the UAE. I would definitely consider myself a foodie having sushi as number one on my list! Number 2 would just have to be ice cream... no matter what time of the year it is.
