Director and Co-Founder
Hina Ukrani was born and raised in Karachi, Pakistan until she immigrated to Canada during grade school. Growing up in Pakistan, she has witnessed the atrocities of poverty and gender inequality right at her doorstep. These experiences have had a deep impact on Hina.
Throughout her time at high school and university, these memories have inspired her to take on a wide variety of academic, work and volunteer activities in the hopes of making the world a better place one step at a time.
In 2012, Hina received the Jean Coulthard Award which honors a youth who has shown her passion for social justice within her local community and on a wider scale. In recent years, Hina has continued to demonstrate her commitment by volunteering at her local hospital and working to provide care to elderly individuals in a retirement home.
In 2017, Hina graduated with a degree biomedical science at the University of Waterloo and currently studies medicine at Saba University School of Medicine. She serves as a director of Hope for Happiness.
