My name is Shophika Vaithyanathasarma and I am the co-host of Together, Ensemble. I am currently pursuing a degree in Mathematics at the University of Montreal in the hope of finding ways to modernize the ways mathematics are taught and make the subject more accessible. I am involved in different youth organizations, because I believe that the best way to ask for change is to get involved socially and be a part of the change. However, not everybody feels comfortable, especially as youth, as their backgrounds, socio-economic factors and mental health are barriers to self-development through social involvement. In the hope of encouraging people to feel their best self, I have the pleasure of being part of Together, Ensemble. A fun fact about me is that I love dark coffee.
