Farzana joined Natural Justice in July 2020 as a 2020-2021 International Fellow.
As an Undergraduate from the University of Toronto Scarborough, much of her research interests lie in agrarian sustainability, as well as justice and sovereignty within food systems. She is currently pursuing a Specialist degree in International Development Studies, with a Major in Environmental Studies.
Prior to joining Natural Justice, she has worked with various grassroots organisations within her community, such as Skills for Change of Metro Toronto, in facilitating education programming, and youth community garden projects. She has also volunteered with community-based non-profits such as Centro de Apoyo Integral Carcelario y Comunitario (C.A.I.C.C) in Cochabamba, Bolivia, serving marginalised youth experiencing poverty, as well as indigenous youth and those negatively impacted by the criminal justice system.
Within campus, she has also had a passion for local arts and cultural engagement through her work with ARTSIDEOUT, an annual multidisciplinary arts festival exploring a diversity of human narratives, cultures and worldviews.
