Hello! My name is Saif and I’m a 1st year physician assistant student at McMaster University. I grew up in Hamilton Ontario and obtained a BSc in Kinesiology at McMaster right before entering the PA program. Since I can I remember, my most defining passion has always been dance, specifically hip hop. Another significant passion of mine is having deep and meaningful conversations about any topic with anyone who is willing. My final burning passion is travelling which I only recently acquired shortly after backpacking Europe by myself for a month.
