Yasmine Izmeth

RISE Program Coordinator - Toronto


Yasmine is a Sri Lankan Malay-Canadian who was raised in different parts of the GTA. Her curiosity, travel experiences, and academic foundation led her to pursue a degree in International Development at McGill University. She dove straight into community projects and advocacy where she learned about different languages of community collaboration and youth capabilities of changing how inefficient systems run. Yasmine's interests lie in anti-sexual violence advocacy, women’s empowerment, and newcomer integration.

Her love of design, creativity, and big picture thinking carries her into makeup artistry, modelling, and community engagement in Montreal and Toronto. 

"You can see evidence of Apathy is Boring’s youth-led, BIPOC-focused, low barrier entryways to community engagement across its programs and platforms. I’m happy to be a part of a team that practices what it preaches."
