Kamilah is a change agent and visionary with a proven track record of designing and implementing highly effective initiatives. She is passionate about allying with marginalised populations and amplifying their voices. She interacts with all individuals through a lens of empathy and equity.

About the Project

Future North is Redefining Success for youth 15-30 years old. Youth and young adults are under immense pressure to pursue education and achieve successful careers. But what is considered successful? Is there a "right" path to achieving success? Through engaging speaking and networking events targeting various populations (BIPOC youth, youth with disabilities, youth in school, and youth going right into the workforce), Future North will demonstrate to youth that the journey to success is instead a journey in success, where the path is not defined, nor linear, but success is achieved at various points along the journey.
