Congratulations to former client and Sangin’s daughter Mina Niazi on her Nomination for a 2014 Women of Distinction Award.
Mina Niazi was born in Afghanistan, one of four daughters in the family of a chemistry professor and an economist. When she was 11 years old, she and her family fled to Russia because of war. She was home schooled and attended refugee school in Russia, before coming to Canada from Moscow in November, 2001. She completed high school at Mount Royal, received a physiology degree and undergraduate medical education at the University of Saskatchewan. Currently, she is a resident in internal medicine and striving to become a gastroenterologist.
Her great sense of passion for education is the drive for her ongoing effort to empower her community through volunteer work with organizations such as the Saskatoon Open Door Society, Student Wellness Initiative Towards Community Health, and within the College of Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan.
Her ultimate goal is to continue to grow as an individual and to continue her contribution to her community and the field of medicine through teaching and research.
