Munifa is a global citizen. Originally from Ethiopia, Munifa has called many places home, from the Arabian desert to the horn of Africa up to the west coast of Canada. The rich exposure to different cultures and languages has increased her awareness and developed her leadership. Since moving to Canada from Saudi Arabia in 2017, she found a profound passion and connection with nature. Especially in Beautiful British Columbia!
During her first year in Toronto, she volunteered and worked in shelters as well as community centres that support immigrants through their transition into Canadian culture. She also supported youth through peer mentorship programs and participated in developing life skill workshops on how to navigate resources, employment and services.
In Vancouver, she utilized every opportunity for professional and personal growth, acquiring a Digital Marketing, Web Development and Project Management Certificate. From Marketing -> Administration-> Reiki Healing -> Coding -> Data Analyzing -> and now Operations Lead, you can tell that she gets easily bored and loves to be challenged.
Currently, she is excited and grateful to join the Sierra Club BC team and pursue her passion for advocating for Mother Earth through her daily work.
