Lina is very active in her local community having initiated various environmental and social projects that break the ice between different fragmented parts of society, including different cultures and faith groups, to enjoy and add value to society together. This has included social outreach activities for the Windsor Islamic Association, including a Ramadan Act of Kindness Campaign neighbourhood BBQs, as well as a community garden and composting project called Together We Flourish. Her community engagement is motivated by her commitment to promoting trust, community, & interconnectedness between all Windsorites. She is particularly dedicated to helping newcomer youth realize their added value to society and encouraging all of us to move beyond a cultural ‘tolerant’ society and towards a more productive, diverse community. Lina is excited to use her role as a youth researcher to promote these goals.
