Tayif Ahmed is an undergraduate student majoring in Political Science at Concordia University. His interest in politics grew from back home in Bangladesh, where he was constantly surrounded by talks of local and national politics of Bangladesh. His participation in political campaigning during elections as well as delegating in various model UNs piqued his interest in politics and human rights, both international and national. His interest in the South Asian diaspora and youth politics led him to participate in student run organizations such as the Bangladeshi Students’ Association of Concordia as VP External and later as an Independent Councilor of the Arts and Science Federation of Associations. He hopes to be able to one day research human rights sustenance and violations in South Asian countries such as Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. As an intern at MIGS, Tayif looks forward to contributing to the organization’s goals and objectives, as well as expanding his knowledge on genocide and human rights studies and how to utilize such knowledge to create more efficient policies.
