Candidate, York Region District School Board (YRDSB) Trustee, Ward 3 & 4 

Students, first.

Dear Markham Community,


I am excited to officially announce my candidacy for YRDSB School Board Trustee (Ward 3 & 4) in the City of Markham in the upcoming 2022 Municipal Elections (October 14-24, 2022). 


As you know, I am — and always have been — steadfast in my advocacy and commitment to ensuring our children and youth are afforded the opportunity to access high quality, barrier-free education in supporting their growth,  development, and success. Over the last two years, students, families, and teachers in our communities have experienced unprecedented challenges to their learning, health and wellbeing fueled by the pandemic. As we look ahead into the upcoming 2022-23 school year, our focus will be on supporting the learning recovery and academic resilience of all students.


‘Lessons learned’ from the COVID-19 pandemic? This election will be a different one. Together, we can continue to support our students' transition back to the classroom, while continuing to ensure that they are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to support rewarding educational pursuits and careers as our very own young leaders and changemakers of tomorrow.


If you wish to embark on this journey with me, email us at

With Gratitude,
