Born in Hong Kong, but moved to Canada as a high school student, Monisa Nandi is a living vessel for all those bucket lists! This Toronto woman has worked heavy machinery and was involved in the land preparation for Toronto’s 2015 Pan Am Games.
She is proud to say she is the first in her family to get Canadian citizenship and sends a shout-out to Bob Rae for that!
A volunteer at the Vancouver Olympics and for this year’s Pan Am games, self-taught crocheter, card maker and hospital fundraiser Monisa isn’t exactly sitting around! There isn’t much this person hasn’t done including driving an excavator and a front-end loader, white water kayaking & rafting, sky diving, rock climbing and ice climbing. Oh, and guys… Im sure she enjoys long walks on the beach as well!
Nandi also has a dog. Because of him, she spent more than 100 hours in dog training classes and is now planning to leave a 15 year career and two degrees in science to play with dogs all day.
MONISA FUN FACT: Reflecting Canada’s multi-lingual presence, she has taken classes in Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, German, French and Hindi! Now THIS is someone you want with you when you go out to a restaurant!
