Yasmin Moavenian was born and raised in North York, Ontario. She attended the prestigious Toronto French School from the age of 3, and remained there until she graduated from high school. It was there that she received her Brevet Diploma, and completed the International Baccalaureate program.
She picked up a native level of French, perfected her English, and even some Spanish along the way. She went on to complete an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Religion from the University of Toronto. While attending University, she had the pleasure of being part of one of North America’s largest sororities, Kappa Kappa Gamma. Yasmin is in law school and plans on graduating and writing the bar in 2011.
When she’s not buried underneath a pile of books, she divides her time between her family and friends. You’ll usually find her at home and in the kitchen, attempting to bake or simply entertaining. This past year, she discovered a strong passion for snowboarding. Philanthropy and a love for the arts are two other topics dear to Yasmin’s heart.
