Welcome and thank you for dropping by. 

My name is Reema Faris and I am a PhD student with the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at Simon Fraser University.

Reema Faris

I’ve found my way back to an academic career after work experience in both the private and public sector.  

You may even know me as a former public school Trustee. I served one term on the West Vancouver Board of Education from 2011 to 2014.

Now that you’ve found my on-line home, I hope you’ll stay for a moment or two and explore this space.


Learn about me and the things I’m thinking about.  

These are issues I’m passionate about and I’m honoured that you’ve taken the time to read my perspective on what’s happening here and around the world. 

I’d love to hear from you, too. Send me your thoughts, comments, and suggestions.

More importantly, feel free to ask me questions because I think there is a great deal of comfort in asking why.  

“Always the beautiful answer who asks a more beautiful question.”
