Sameena is strongly committed to her Calgary community. Her history of deep dedication to public service and education will make her an excellent MLA for Calgary-Foothills.
An educator at her core, Sameena built her career as a teacher in the Middle East and as a social educator and settlement counsellor in Canada. Sameena holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Education from the University of Punjab. Since her arrival in Canada 15 years ago, she has worked with some of Calgary’s most vulnerable populations including immigrant seniors and youth. She is currently working as a Seniors’ Program Coordinator at an immigrant serving agency.
Sameena is also an active volunteer for the South Asian Police Advisory Committee (SAPAC).
Her personal and professional experience have given her a strong sense of pride in calling Calgary home and a keen knowledge of what is at stake in the next election. She is honoured to be on Rachel Notley’s team and committed to fighting for what matters on behalf of Calgary-Foothills.
