Syeda Zareen Rafa joined the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC's) public affairs & communications team in 2022, right out of university. She grew up in Dhaka, Bangladesh and lives in Montreal, QC now. Having always lived in cities, she did not get to spend as much time in nature as she would like to. But working at NCC and being around other nature lovers inspires her to make time for outdoor activities. She is hoping she can learn how to ski this year without breaking too many bones.
