Zariyah Severin's Biography
Zariyah Severin is an 18-year-old African American female, born in Mississauga and raised in Brampton. As a young female who is also of Nova Scotian descent, she knows what it means and how important it is to be surrounded by a tight-knit community full of mentors who encourage and motivate young people.
The motivation she was shown growing up only encouraged her to be able to do the same for others. At just age 16, Zariyah graduated from high school for the sole purpose of wanting to be an example for others around her, as well as be a motivating role model who others could look up to.
Zariyah’s goal is to reach at least one young person during this mentorship program, to motivate and encourage them to be their best and authentic self.
