As a settler, Hasrat lives, learns, and breathes on the unceded, ancestral, occupied and traditional lands of the Coast Salish peoples- Sḵwx̱wú7mesh’ (Squamish, BC). She owes her gratitude to every ordinary person, who overcomes not-so-ordinary challenges on a daily basis; these are the people who never cease to inspire her, and the work she is doing. She has worked in the field of migrant community work for over five years and is passionate about advocating for migrant rights. Hasrat completed her MA degree in Immigration and Settlement Studies from Ryerson University. Her graduate research focuses on decolonization of immigrant integration in Canada, while exploring the inclusion of Indigenous and immigrant perspectives into the idea of being ‘Canadian’. Through her work she aspires to hold up the resistance of Indigenous peoples, the voices of the immigrants and refugees, their resilience and strength in the face of ongoing dispossession and colonial violence. She also works as an Instructor in the Department of Community Development and Outreach at Capilano University.
