Bob Leahy: Nadha, congratulations on your award, first of all.
Nadha Hassen: Thank you very much.
What’s your background?
I consider myself to be a little bit of a person of the world. I was born in Saudi Arabia and my family moved to the United Arab Emirate when I was five and that was where I grew up.
And how long have you been in Canada?
I’m originally Sri Lankan so that’s been a crucial part of my upbringing as well but I moved to Canada for university when I was about 17.
