A Message From Our Executive Director

It is a privilege to have the opportunity to lead FuturFund and drive the financial literacy empowerment movement among youth in Canada.

I am a third-year student at York University, where she studies business at the Schulich School of Business. In my free time, I can usually be found advocating for financial literacy education, volunteering, or reading a long book. I hope to one day complete my bucket list which includes learning American Sign Language, being an extra in a movie and 84 other things.
