Taking some time to enjoy a warm, sunny afternoon in Toronto Chithi Sivayogarajah and his friend, Shana Gerrard relax at Sugar Beach with the hull of a huge ship at a backdrop.

Chithi was born in Palermo, Sicily, Italy before moving to Canada when he was one year old. Chithi is attending Seneca College for their Business Administration programme. Chithi's goal is to work in Human Resources. After Seneca, he is hoping to get a business degree to make himself even more employable. To help put himself through school, Chithi works at Corus Entertainment as a clerk.

Living in Pickering, Ontario, Chithi loves to hop on transit to Toronto and explore some of the cool sites around the city such as where we are right now at Sugar Beach where large pink umbrellas, white beach chairs and course sugary sand offers views of the Toronto Islands and of the ships, a stone's throw away, unloading their cargo of raw sugar.

Shana was born in Pickering, Ontario, just east of the city and like her friend Chithi, is proud of her Sri Lankan roots. Currently Shana is also attending Seneca College and is almost finished their Social Work programme. At this point she is interested in social work around youth and women. Balancing the heavy subject matter of social work, Shana recognizes and embraces the spontaneous and fun side of her open and optimistic personality.
