About Me   About Me
My name is Sara Hassan and I joined the TakingITGlobal team in June 2011. I currently work as an Education Program Officer. In this role, I support support environmental education programs (deforestaction.org) and help educators to better integrate student voice in education (www.tigurl.org/ecourses). I was also involved in facilitating the Sprout e-Course (www.sproutecourse.org) for aspiring social innovators around the world.

A little about me:

My family is from Pakistan but immigrated to Canada in the early 1980s. I love school and keep going back! I have a BA from York University in International Development Studies and an MA from McMaster University in Globalization Studies with a focus on global citizenship education. More recently, I received my B.Ed from the University of Toronto, qualifying in Primary/Junior and Aboriginal education.

I have a bit of a travel bug; I lived in Switzerland during my last few years of high school and have spent a few years working on international development projects in Guyana (youth development and capacity-building), Honduras (HIV/AIDS education) and Tanzania (early childhood development and youth employment).

I look forward to getting to know you all!
