Jeehan is passionate about community building and advocacy work. During her time at Mt.A, she coordinated a student mentorship program, spent a year on a residence team as Assistant Don, and sat on the executive of multiple student societies. She also curated two TEDx events and partook in organizing a national conference highlighting the contribution of women across multiple disciplines to Canadian public discourse. In her free time, Jeehan loves cooking, spending time with friends, and exploring whichever city or town she’s in, one coffee-shop at a time.
