Melika is currently pursuing her B.A in Political Science with a minor in Philosophy at Concordia University. With only having lived in Montréal for four years, her strong desire to engage more with her local community brought her to Apathy Is Boring. Melika sees her passion for youth empowerment through education as the driving force for her community involvement. In the upcoming year, she hopes to continue her studies by pursuing a Master’s degree in Communication and International Development and aspires to create her own community project centered around the youth of South Africa, her hometown. Bitten by the ‘travel bug’, she sees herself travelling across continents to experience the richness and diversity of the world.
“When I stumbled upon the opportunity to join the AisB family, I was more than thrilled! What I love the most about the organization is the whole culture behind creating opportunities for the youth to harvest their potential as civically engaged citizens. Getting to share these experiences with passionate, creatively-driven, young people is just the icing on the cake and will definitely make it hard to leave at the end of the summer.”
