Competitor turned exec member, I come back each year as I am blown away by the many talents of our youth plus I love working with so many passionate and motivated driven individuals working on an initiative for the youth by the youth.
Strategic Operations Manager
I love MIST because it's a comfort zone, a competitive field, and an experimentation ground all wrapped up into one.
Special Events Manager
I'm one of this year's Registration Managers, and this is my sixth year at MIST Toronto (alhamdulillah).
MIST pushes students to their best it allows them to see their potential which is something I appreciated a lot both as a competitor and as part of the exec. It is solely run by young youth in the community; it is wonderful to see how young youth are given the opportunity to prove themseleves and show how amazing and powerful they are.
I joined MIST by accident but it literally has changed my life. Because of it, I've discovered talents I never knew I had, traveled across North America and met some of the most inspiring young Muslims.
Joining MIST back in Grade 11 changed my whole outlook on my new life and has helped me grow in so many ways. The people I’ve met, the memories I’ve made, and the way I’ve evolved.
Sports Day Manager
Acting as a Sports Manager this year, I look forward to seeing the excitement and extraordinary spirit at Sports Day, and having that energy carry on throughout the rest of the tournament.

How I got involved with mist: I thought I was going on a field trip to Niagara Falls
I've developed a great sense of appreciation for the opportunity to explore, expand, and share my skills and abilities through my current role as the HR Manager.
"What truly belongs to you is that which you would not lose in a shipwreck.” MIST is special because it has allowed me to internalize qualities, skills, and characteristics that I would not lose in a shipwreck. In other words, MIST and the plethora of lessons it entails truly belong in my heart!
MIST helps individuals grow to their full potential, and it helps those individuals form a community of people working to better the world around them.
Sports Day Manager
Once I saw how fun MIST was and how many people you get to meet, I got involved every year and did something new every time. Now I’m hoping inshallah to plan MIST nationals 2016!
MIST is a great opportunity for youth to develop key skills that will help them become active university students and adults.
Graphic Design Manager
This will be my fourth year participating in MIST, I started off as a volunteer. This year, I am Graphic Design Manager for and am super excited to design this year's theme into visual graphics (www.samahat.com).
I joined MIST on a whim, but stayed for the amazing people I met. It's like an extended family you never asked for, but are immensely grateful to have regardless.
