Questions can transform and advance each one of us. Mandekh encourages us to flip ideas on their heads by asking questions to ultimately be better informed and invoke change.
Mandekh Hussein is in her final year as an International Development Studies (co-op) student at the University of Toronto. She actively aims to reconfigure the boundaries set by society so that more individuals are able to live their lives in a manner that makes them happy and unafraid of judgment. Her work experience in both Kenya and Mozambique has shaped her understanding of international aid and support. Her interests lie in human security development in conflict and crisis settings. She is one of the founding members of MAANTA International, an organization aiming to increase access to education and creating empowering environments to young women in the Horn of Africa.
