Honouring Yumna Afzaal
Ottawa, June 7, 2021 – A student of Oakridge Secondary School in London, Yumna Afzaal participated in the 2019 Thames Valley Science and Engineering Fair. Like countless Canadian youth, she was curious, intelligent and caring.
On June 6, her life and journey among us ended due to reasons we can never understand; that go against all elements of our shared humanity. Together with all members of the Youth Science Canada, STEM Fair and Education communities, we honour her life, the life of her family and all those who are victims to hatred, racism, discrimination and intimidation of any kind.
Yumna – we will remember you and strive for a better world.
