I immigrated from Pakistan to Edmonton in 2006.Coming from a country where safety was always a concern, I’ve always been very thankful for being able to call Edmonton home. I feel that it is my duty to give back to this city. I vote in every election, write for the Edmonton Journal and volunteer my time every chance I get. Whenever I volunteer I always meet people from different cultures, religions and ethnicity. I find the more we learn about each other the better our country becomes!
