Please join CFUW Aurora/Newmarket as we celebrate International Women’s Day, March 8, at 10:00 AM. We are partnering with The Shoe Project to bring you a dynamic virtual presentation.
Three alumni of the project will tell their brave and moving stories utilizing shoes as a metaphor in describing their journeys to new lives in Canada.
We welcome these speakers for our IWD event:
- Umut Duyga Uzunel came to Canada in 2017 to escape political unrest in Turkey. Umut reunited with her children 18 months later. She is now studying naturopathic medicine as an additional way to help people in need.
- Teenaz Javat came to Canada in 1997. She is a journalist, by blood Indian, by bond Pakistani and by choice Canadian. Among many of her duties, Teenaz writes headlines for a living at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
- Versushka Samarkina, now an ESL instructor moved from Russia to Canada in 2009. She has a PhD in Literature and more than 20 years of teaching experience.
