I started off as a volunteer for MIST back in 2013, then I became a Dream Team member and now I'm a manager! It all started after high school and hearing about MIST through one of my MSA teachers!

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.

AFEEFAH ALLY
Associate Director

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.               

 

Now this is a story all about how…my life got twisted upside down! Moving from Florida to Canada, I was not at all enthused about starting my life again, with a new school and new friends. 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 - I am forever grateful.

Elevating my passion for MIST to new heights, my commitment to the tournament began 5 years ago as a competitor and eventually as the co-ambassador from my school. 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. We all put our hearts and souls into MIST and I am thrilled to see the outcome of everyone’s hard work!

"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!
