Faraz Bukhari | 2017 – 2018

My name is Faraz and I struggle extremely hard to find interesting things about myself; I have exalted nearly as much effort in writing this as I have in searching for my empathy face! I am incredibly excited to be a part of the Extreme Psychiatry team, giving back to a group that gave so much to me (and I am not just talking about the copious biscuits and Pringles). I love to dab(ble) in spoken word and poetry, and love to write; I did plan on writing a short novel over summer but, as with most summer plans, it went unfulfilled in lieu of sleep (my most cherished hobby). I love to eat (no that was not a part of my decision to be a peer facilitator *insert eyes emoji*) yet have to often contain myself because, like a snowball rolling down a mountain, it only takes minutes before I become unstoppable.

Extreme Psychiatry truly allows students to flourish and make the most out of such an important specialty, and it is an honour to be a part of the team helping these caterpillars develop into the butterflies they have the ability to be. I am excited to be helping out this year, and hope I can learn as much from the students as (hopefully) they can from me!
