Meet the Hosts! (Imran Dharamsi, Fatima Al-Sayed)
Join us for our special meet the hosts show! As a journalist In the West, Fatima Al-Sayed aims to bring more awareness about her community through storytelling. Fatima grew up in Toronto, where she did her undergraduate degree in Journalism at the University of Toronto and received a diploma in Journalism from Centennial College. She landed two internships after graduating. Her first internship was at The National Post, working on video content creation for the Financial Post. Her second internship was at CBC Canada’s “Day 6” radio show/podcast, where she pitched and produced stories. Fatima worked for the CBC before moving to Michigan, where she currently resides with her husband and works as a freelancer and hosts the Professional Edition of the uMentor Talk Show. Imran Dharamsi is a first-year student at Brown University interested in biology, economics, and political science. He is still exploring his future career path, and is looking forward to taking advantage of Brown’s open curriculum during his academic journey. He is involved in a number of student organizations including Brown’s Muslim Student Association, the Ma’rifa Shi’a youth group, and Brown’s chapter of Every Vote Counts. Imran also enjoys tutoring within his community and volunteers at his Madressa, and has built algebra2.org, a free algebra help website for high school students. Imran is an avid volunteer at the Umoja Outreach Foundation, and recently began hosting the Teen Edition of the uMentor Talk Show. He hopes that bringing a teenage viewpoint to the show will help high schoolers and college students his age to answer some of the pressing questions they face while getting ready for their careers.
