Introducing Ilziba, 19, a Health Sciences student at McMaster University and volunteer at the Tarim Network, based in Canada!
1. What inspires you the most?
My parents are my biggest inspirations. Seeing how hard they have worked to get my brother and I a good education inspires me to work hard every day. Even though I'm far from them due to university, I try to make them proud through my work.
2. How have you spent the last year?
Last year was my first year at university! I spent the majority of it getting involved in different organizations around campus such as McMaster Diversity Services. Also, I spent time exploring Ontario since I'm originally from Calgary.
3. What two subjects do you love talking about?
I love talking about health and anthropology. They may seem like completely different subjects! However, when you look at the intersection of these two subjects, you realize the importance that social issues play in health, in addition to the biomedical factors.
