Meet our Wonderful Team

WiSC 2021-2022

Core Team

Ayesha Tayyiba

President

When I'm not stressing about school, I like to read, paint, and watch Netflix :). I also really enjoy experimenting with different forms of art: a few months ago it was embroidery, right now it's sewing! This year, I hope WiSC is able to create a tight-knit community, both online and on-campus, for women-identifying students!

Mishaal Farooq

Vice President: Internal Affairs (3rd Year)

Apart from studying and school, I love nature and going on adventures with my friends and family. I also love fashion and makeup, and you'll likely find me online shopping in my spare time :') This year, I would love to see WiSC hosting initiatives that bring together the entire community within these unprecedented times.

Celma Javier

Vice President: Human Resources (3rd Year)

A fun fact about me is that I love nature and advocating for the protection of our environment. One day I hope to explore the natural wonders of the world! I hope we can create more opportunities for people to continue to learn about STEM and their passions.

Dunia Stanojevic

Vice President: Computational Sciences (3rd Year)

I've been swimming since I was very young, so anytime I have the opportunity to go to the pool or visit the beach, you'll find me there! I also love being outside and going for walks with friends! I would love for WiSC to continue to have spaces where students can not only work on studying together, but also bond and create meaningful relationships with one another!

Eaman Tareen

Vice President: General Science (3rd Year)

My favorite thing in the world to do is grab a glass of coffee and read a nice book! I would love to see more science students get involved with WiSC and for WiSC to host more initiatives and events catered towards science students!

Mentorship Program Team

Verina Tanious

Mentorship Program Lead (4th Year)

I love going out and exploring new places, locally and abroad! So far, I've been to 8 countries and can't wait to visit more :) I hope to see WiSC expand more into the sciences and provide research/internship opportunities for them!

Kitty Yu

Director of Mentor Relations (Final Year)

Some of my hobbies include gardening, caring for reptiles, and gaming! I'm also very passionate about chemistry and supporting other women in STEM! I hope to see more UTM students take part in WiSC events!

Maryam Qayyum

Director of Student Mentor Relations (2nd Year)

I love to nap, hike, and have practically binge watched everything on Netflix! A fun fact about me is I recently moved here from New York. I look forward to building a strong community of women who share the same passions as me as we navigate the STEM field!

Virginia Chiu

Director of Mentee Relations (4th Year)

Over the pandemic I've picked up plants as a hobby - carnivorous plants and cacti in particular! I I also love to draw and paint in my spare time! This year, I'd love to see WiSC's mentorship programs attract more students and mentors alike.

Associates Team

Anh Nguyen

Associates Director (4th Year)

Fun fact 1: It's my last year (hopefully) at UTM, my second year at WiSC, and my first year being the Director of First Year Associates. Fun fact 2: The correct pronunciation of my name is "eye-ing" but i don't mind people mispronouncing it anyways I would love to see us WiSC up the initiatives that could not be implemented in the past years and more initiatives to come!

Aatma Patel

First Year Associate (1st Year)

My hobbies include travelling, practicing mindfulness, exploring the arts, playing net sports and reading. When I'm not doing any of those things you can find me gazing at the sunset with headphones and a journal.I'm looking forward to helping in empowering female-identifying trailblazers in STEM through interactively creative pursuits throughout this year.

Garima Panwar

First Year Associate (1st Year)

I love biking on beautiful nature trails, eating spicy food, cooking/baking, and continously learning new things. I would love to learn how to code, swim, play the piano, and do martial arts. I hope to see WiSc provide more career opportunities for women in science and computing, as well as provide them with the space to grow and shine, personally and professionally.

Computational Sciences Team

Nada Al-Towaity

Computational Sciences: Director of Events (2nd Year)

I like to challenge myself often by taking on opportunities that get me to step out of my comfort zone, as such experiences bring about the greatest personal/professional/academic growth. Fun fact: I love to play badminton and watch soccer. As an events director at WiSC, I wish to see an increase in students' engagement with our events!

Sarah Mansoor

Manjoy Malhotra

Director of Marketing (4th Year)

I am an avid writer, and have produced a self-authored play, and published some short stories and poems. I am super keen on understanding how communications and interactions between people can be improved. For this year, I would like our team to promote and advertise more collaborative events that allow students to increase their competencies through team-work driven projects.

Ayla Sitwat

Director of Social Media (2nd Year)

I absolutely love listening to music (I'm a huge Harry Styles fan!) and reading novels. I also enjoy travelling and writing, and occasionally try my hand at cooking as well! I hope that this year, WiSC is able to empower as many students as possible to dream big and aim high!

Areta Kabir

I like playing the Sims and can guess any Taylor Swift song from the first 3 seconds! I'd love to see WiSC organize a fundraising event for charities that are addressing educational equality and promoting women in STEM.

Joyce Wong

I play badminton and I'm also trying to pick up bass guitar recently. I'd love to be part of WiSC and help build the community :D

Riddhi Gopinath

Director of Finance (3rd Year)

I’ve been playing golf since I was 8! And I’m double jointed:) I’d like for the WiSC to create a sense of community through online/in-person events, so that students can feel better supported in achieving their goals. (And I hope to optimize the budget so that we won’t go broke doing it :))
