About the Team

Da Beattie, Co-President

My name is Da Beattie and I am a fourth-year student studying Immunology and Biomedical Toxicology. I love reading, writing, cycling and baking! I am a big fan of the public library and I particularly love to read romance and young adult.

Amna Abu Askar, Co-President

My name is Amna and I am a fourth-year student studying Human Biology and Nutritional Sciences with a minor in physiology. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, crocheting, and going on long nature walks. I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the beauty and wonder that nature has to offer, which is why I decided to join BlogUofTo as a writer.

Simran Randhawa, Blog Editor-in-Chief

My name is Simran, and I’m a fourth-year student at UofT St. George with a major in Criminology and Socio-Legal Studies, and English and Philosophy minors. Alongside my profound love for nature, I enjoy travelling, the musical, visual, and literary arts, and learning something new every day! I strongly believe that environmental awareness and appreciation are necessary and that we must reciprocate the natural world. It’s important to realize that, “It is not what the world holds for you. It is what you bring to it.”

Daina Elias, Administration & Marketing Executive

My name is Daina, and I’m a fourth-year student at UofT St. George, double majoring in Criminology & Socio-Legal Studies and Cinema Studies with a minor in Sociology. In my spare time, I enjoy watching films, reading philosophical books, traveling, meditating and appreciating nature.
