Muna Ibrahim – Camp Chair
Firas Moosvi – Registration Coordinator
Firas is a Grade 8 and 9 teacher at the Madrasah Az-Zahraa and is currently a PhD. candidate at UBC in the area of Medical Physics. In his spare time, he has taken on several projects in the exciting field of Physics Education Research. He has had a fantastic time experimenting with novel teaching methods in Madrasah, and the kids seem to have enjoyed it as well. Firas loves the outdoors and in particular, water sports on canoes, kayaks and dragonboats. He is looking forward to taking kids out camping out this summer on the beautiful Sunshine Coast!

Hira Imam – Marketing Coordinator
Hira Imam moved from Toronto last year and absolutely loves the weather in Vancouver. She recently graduated from the University of Toronto with an Honours Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Biology and specializing in Psychology. Hira has a strong interest in Social Psychology – interpersonal relations – and building strong ties within the community. She hopes that Camp Aspire will allow the youth of the Greater Vancouver Area to create long lasting, meaningful relationships that will lead them and, ultimately, their community to a fulfilling and successful life. In her spare time Hira loves to read (especially mystery and dystopian novels) and her favourite books are the Harry Potter series.
