Zeynab Ahmed has been instrumental in helping the entire Nepean High School community learn, change and evolve, whether it’s through her involvement in the Diverse Student Union, the OCDSB’s Black Student Forum, or her many other contributions.

Dina Efrem is an exceptional advocate for equity and social justice. She has been a member of Nepean High School's Diverse Student Union (DSU) since grade 9, and has helped organize the school’s Black History Month assembly and multicultural festival. In grade 10 her courageous work resulted in leadership roles on several DSU subcommittees, and in her graduating year she passionately served as the DSU’s co-head. She also facilitated and constructed bi-weekly lessons on anti-racism and hosted discussions on relevant topics, and with Dina’s help the DSU has made strong ties within the OCDSB and with other DSUs and Black Student Unions across the board. She has helped inform NHS educators on the importance of including Black joy, voices, and history in classes during Black History Month, and collaborates with school departments to ensure diverse perspectives are included in class. Dina is also one of the co-editors of Knightwatch, the school e- newspaper, which allowed her to write an article for the Kitchissippi Times on racial diversity and inclusivity at her school. Students and staff appreciate Dina’s commitment to equity and inclusion!
