Raunaq considers himself to be a part of the next gen New West residents who are and would be playing a huge part in shaping our city’s future. On the outside, he might appear to be a normal avocado loving, 21 year old who spends too much time at the local hip cafe. But he strongly believes in taking a proactive stance in bringing positive change in our community whether it is through volunteering or through being involved in local elections. Raunaq is presently in his fourth year of Undergrad at SFU’s Beedie School of Business. From often finding himself to being the youngest one at local committee meetings to getting his name butchered by strangers, Raunaq wants to share his experience about immigrating to Canada at the raw age of 16 and having to navigate his way through his alien surroundings. He hopes to inspire others to step out of their comfort zones and embrace change by stepping up and getting involved in our local communities. If a centennial can do it, so can you!
