Zafreen Jaffer – April 2016
Zafreen: I am a something year anthropology major. I transferred to Kwantlen from Capilano, so I’m not quite sure what year I would be in. I am a recovering chocoholic so it helps that I may now be allergic to chocolate. I love to dance, and sing, and draw, and create. I am a feminist. I am a hugger, so if you really need a hug, find me. I listen to music that many people around here have heard of. I was born in England, and am a big cricket fan. I like to make others happy. I am actively trying to change the world.
Question: How did you hear about KPIRG?
Zafreen: I attended clubs day at the Richmond campus, and saw KPIRG’s table. I signed up to volunteer, but only received a few emails. A few months later, I was speaking to Natasha about WOOW, and she informed me of the International Women’s Day event being organised by KPIRG and suggested I get involved.
Question: Why did you get involved with KPIRG?
Zafreen: On the Richmond campus there was very few ways to get involved. When I came to the Surrey campus and found KPIRG I saw a way for me to get involved. I feel that KPIRG can further educate me on topics I care a lot about, and on topics I don’t know a lot about. I thoroughly enjoyed working on the International Women’s Day event with them, and look forward to working with them on future projects too.
