Hi, I’m Netanya
Hello everyone! I’m Netanya. I am currently in the fourth year of my undergraduate program studying Media and the Public Interest at Western University. I am very excited to get started on my mindyourmind journey.
I was born in Dubai and came to Canada when I was four years old. I spent the next eight years in Scarborough then moved to Markham to eventually come to university in London, Ontario. I am extremely passionate about film and storytelling as I believe a good story can empower people and open our eyes to new complexities of life. In my free time, I love to read, travel and eat!
Growing up as an Indian South Asian immigrant, the subject of mental health was never addressed. I want to help create safe and accessible resources surrounding mental health specific to someone's cultural associations to make people feel supported within their community. I am looking forward to all the great work ahead.
Netanya is currently a Media and Public Interest student at Western University, and is doing a placement with mindyourmind. She is from the GTA and is passionate about all things mental health, storytelling and empowerment.
