My friend and I ended up stranded on a highway in Montreal on my 25th birthday, which also happened to be the coldest weekend in December. We had to dance on the side of the road to keep ourselves warm – safe to say, it was a truly memorable birthday!

Tanya is the Partnerships Manager at Rumie, working with our NGO partners with on-the-ground learning programs. Her past work experience has been within the field of education, and she is also currently pursuing a Masters degree in Adult Education and Community Development at the University of Toronto.

In 2016, she co-founded the Dabke Collective, an initiative for participatory and collaborative art/storytelling for marginalized communities and unheard voices. Given her involvement in education, community development and the arts, her interest is rooted in exploring alternative and innovative learning methodologies for social impact.
