Munazza Abbasi

Munazza, originally from Pakistan, has a undergraduate degree in Sociology and Legal Studies from the University of Waterloo. As a young immigrant, who came to Canada with her family, Munazza has personally experienced challenges immigrants usually face. But she has learned to navigate the system not only as a Pakistani immigrant but also as a Canadian who grew up here.

Having been through the struggles of immigrants, Munazza decided to become actively involved in the community through initiatives of empowerment for marginalized and at-risk populations. She has worked with many non-profits, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and multiple women’s groups in her hometown, Toronto. Munazza has also been a host for CMW’s Tea and Tales with Muslim Women program.

She is motivated to create a happy, healthy, and safe space for everyone.
