Safaa Farook


I am Safaa Farook, A business Accounting student at the Cornwall campus and also the president of the Cornwall Student Union for the year 2023/24. I am from Sri Lanka and I am excited to be a part of the Cornwall Student Union. I am a very passionate speaker from a toastmasters Club from my home country. I love to get involved in community projects and social services as it gives me a sense of self satisfaction and makes me feel better. Painting and drawing are my most favorite hobbies which second in line comes reading novels. Becoming president of the Cornwall Student Union was not even my dream as I thought it was too much to ask once I landed in Canada. I had an impression to start small and then aim bigger in the years to come. However, with all the effort and passion I had earned me this position which I am humbled and grateful for. Hence, my little piece of advise is that work smart on our goals, dream about the impossible and prepare for the worse. Because life is all about surprises!
