I am run­ning for City Coun­cil with the Burn­aby Green Party. I was born in Ot­tawa, On­tario and grew up in Pak­istan. I moved to the United States to pur­sue my Bach­e­lor of Arts with hon­ors in In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness and Eco­nom­ics and a Mas­ter’s de­gree in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion from the Univer­sity of Illi­nois. I have ex­ten­sive pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing as a project man­ager with multi­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions.For the past two years, I have been a mem­ber of the Burn­aby com­mu­nity with my two young sons. Hav­ing faced is­sues in Burn­aby my­self, I un­der­stand the chal­lenges and needs of young fam­i­lies. In ad­di­tion, I am highly mo­ti­vated, out­go­ing and fully ca­pa­ble to solve those prob­lems to ben­e­fit the en­tire com­mu­nity. I want a bet­ter city for not only my chil­dren but for all the chil­dren to grow up in. The top three is­sues in Burn­aby that I want to solve are: 1.Af­ford­able Hous­ing: 2.Lack of day­care space and be­fore and after school care: 3.Healthy, Ac­ces­si­ble Pub­lic Spa­ces: Canada is the only western coun­try to break into the top 20 most di­verse, and I proudly rep­re­sents that di­ver­sity as part of the Burn­aby Com­mu­nity. So I would urge ev­ery Mus­lim broth­ers and sis­ter to come out and Vote so we can make our city a bet­ter place to live. How you can help me is to please come out vote and urge your friends and fam­ily to vote. Please reach out to me with any ques­tions you have and any­thing that you want to dis­cuss.
