Hey! I'm Fraser, I'm a grade 11 student at Newmarket High School, and I'm also an Outreach Associate for HNP. I joined HNP Ontario as I shared the common goal of creating awareness of the climate crisis and utilizing the power of Gen Z. I love music, both playing and listening. My favourite artists include Lorde, Mitski and Wallows.

Hi! I'm Natalie Sienkiewicz, a grade 10 student at St. Theresa of Lisieux CHS. I'm an Outreach Associate at HNP Ontario. I joined HNP Ontario because I find it very important to look at everything through an ethical and sustainable lens, especially in business, which is one of my interests. I love to read, play tennis, write short stories and poems, and do puzzles.

My name is Chitra Sekhri, and I am Outreach Associate for HNP Ontario. I joined HNP because I have always been enthusiastic about advocating for environmental issues and understanding the multiple factors that play a role in them. For this reason I joined HNP as I would like to learn more, but also contribute to the fight against environmental problems such as climate change.

 Hi!! My name is Selena and I am this year's Fellowship Director!! I'm in grade 11 at STL and I am super excited to be working with HNP to bring you a new and engaging Fellowship for this year (so keep an eye out!!) Other than that, if I'm not doing homework or playing tetris, you can find me doing art, working out, or fighting bears in the woods (jk I love and respect nature <3)

Hey Everyone. My name is Hamza Khokhawala and I currently attend Dr. G.W Williams Secondary School in Grade 11 as an IB Student. I joined HNP as a Fellowship Financial Officer because I really wanted to help influence a change in the community in terms of our environment, and thought the best way to do so would be to captilize on my skills in finance to make the most difference. I have past experience being a volunteer at several different organizations working in the world of accounting and finance and hope to also continue it in the future! I can’t wait to see what we can achieve here and hopefully have a great fellowship in the summer!
