Hi there! I’m Janani, and I’m the Finance Coordinator at the CCGSD. I first began my journey with the centre in the summer of 2017, as a co-op student planning events and helping out with odds and ends around the office for a high school credit. This past summer, I was a Community Coordinator with the CCGSD during the summer, and was taken on as permanent staff as the Finance Coordinator as well. I’m attending the University of Ottawa for Political Science and Women/Gender Studies in French Immersion, and I feel passionately tied to the work I do here at the centre!
In my spare time, I love literature and theatre and love expressing myself through various artistic mediums. I’m also a second degree black belt in karate, which I’ve done since I was five! I teach karate to children and adults alike in my spare time as well!
As a queer young woman of colour, I am extremely pleased to have my personal and professional lives intersect in a way that is productive to my personal growth, as well as the development of my career. 🙂
