Rajpreet (she/her) is currently based in Tkaronto & Kitchener-Waterloo and is finishing her studies in International Development Studies Co-op and Human Geography at the University of Toronto Scarborough. She is a School of Cities Undergraduate Fellow and will be organizing alternative mapping workshops with the Scarborough Studies Collective.
As a recipient of the Covid-19 Student Engagement Award, Rajpreet and a team of University of Toronto students made a cookbook with each recipe coming from a community member sharing what they were cooking during the pandemic. The goal of the cookbook is to create a global platform for individuals who are struggling with cooking and/or are in need of new ideas for meals
You can access the cookbook here.
This interview is part of our Covid-19 Speaker Series, which highlights the work of University of Toronto students who were recipients of the COVID-19 Student Engagement Award. The COVID-19 Student Engagement Award provided financial support to University of Toronto students developing innovative projects that have contributed to the response to the COVID-19 crisis.
This series was envisioned by and carried out by Iram Iram, Ajla Behri, Feroza Tareen, and Ebube Umeano, student staff in our Leadership and Co-Curricular Record team, with some editing assistance from Jonathan Collaton, the regular host of The Meeting Place.
