I am Arefa Hassani. I love cats. I drink copious amounts of tea. I enjoy reading, writing, and talking to my cat. I have completed my bachelor in psychological science (cognitive neuroscience) and am currently doing my honours. I aim to nurture my heart’s loving capacity and to expand my circle of compassion. Knowing we all contribute to the world’s pain, I seek to live mindfully and to reduce as much suffering as I can for my fellow earthlings. Driven by compassion and empathy, I hope I can be instrumental in materialising the foundation’s aim of reaching as many lives as possible. As a member of the board, I will do my best to serve the foundation and, ultimately, those in need of our assistance.
