Fatou Yeli Kourouma
Hello! My name is Fatou Yeli Kourouma, a 10th grader at THINK Global School. I am incredibly passionate about music, martial arts, STEM, and advocating for social justice. I intend to pursue a career in Computer Science or Medicine.
In my free time, you’ll probably catch me playing piano or guitar, training Muay Thai at my gym, building websites, or volunteering in my community.
My name is Amy Wong, and I’m a Journalist and Graphic Designer for JFS. I enjoy painting and have been doing art ever since I was young. I also like creative writing and psychology, as well as the sciences in general. Studying psychology has led me to take a recent interest in social issues and politics, and I want to discover why our society operates as it does, and how we can change it for the better. I hope to learn more and help educate others on my journey here at JFS!
Hello! My name is Shuchi (she/her) and I am a 14 year old IB student in Brampton, Ontario. Currently I work as a Graphic Designer for the JFS team and the reason I joined was because I wanted to take a stand and help spread awareness on the many social justice issues we face today. I enjoy drawing and graphic design immensely and I also have an interest in the sciences as well, specifically astronomy. I am very thankful for the opportunity I was given here and I am very excited to continue to work with the team!

Hi! I’m Ella (she/her), and I’m an 11th grader from upstate New York. When I’m not doing schoolwork, I love to design and code, and I hope to pursue computer science (hopefully incorporating art, too) in college. When I’m not designing or coding, I also love to play several instruments, including guitar, ukulele, and piano. I also occasionally write songs!
Living in upstate NY, I really enjoy taking walks out in nature and discovering new spots with friends, and I also love watching shows and movies (some favorites are The Office, Jane the Virgin, and Matilda). I’m super excited to be a part of JFS!

Hi! My name is Jaysheen and I’m a grade 11 student attending Okanagan Mission Secondary school in Kelowna, BC, Canada. I have always had a passion for the sciences, specifically human anatomy and physiology, and am working towards specializing in the field of medicine. While pursuing these passions however, I discovered that I also really love to be creative in the form of digital media, writing, and theatre! All of these activities have helped me to establish my voice as a driven, passionate person that believes that change is possible when an effort is made. That is why I’m so excited to be a member of the JFS team and be able to acquire new skills surrounded by equally as passionate, hard working people
I'm Aroush (she/her) and I'm excited to join the JFS team as social media manager! I am a grade 12 student residing in Calgary AB. I'm passionate about sociology and criminal Justice. In my spare time you can catch me baking, reading up on true crime, or working out, and I'm always listening to music. I find societal issues such as racism, colourism, classism and sexism extremely pressing but I'm most passionate about mental health and working towards an achievable and sustainable equality, ridding society of out-dated classist, racist and sexist realities in today's world. I am looking forward to and committed to providing you guys with easily accessible and reliable resources regarding imperative societal issues! Constantly learning and growing as a person is so important to me and I hope that through the work we do here at JFS magazine we can provide youth (and peoples of all ages!) with reliable information especially about taboo and unexamined topics in a safe and inclusive environment!
