Farzeen was born and raised in Toronto, where he attended high school at École secondaire Étienne-Brûlé. During that time, he was extremely involved in sports, captaining the varsity basketball team and competing at the national level in tennis. An unfortunate sports injury lead him to start coaching tennis for the City of Toronto and to start his own business, teaching kids in his neighbourhood.
Last summer, Farzeen had a fulfilling learning experience, operating his own business as a Franchise Owner for College Pro Painters. In this capacity, he employed over a dozen people and serviced over 30 customers. Farzeen is also the Portfolio Manager (formerly Analyst) for the Cash Yield sector on QUIC, where he continues to be engaged by the world of real estate.
Farzeen is fully bilingual in French and English, and is working to become fluent in Spanish. He hopes to one day work abroad, and take advantage of his breadth of culture and languages. Farzeen also enjoys travelling, skiing, poker and closely following the NBA.
This summer, Farzeen will be working in the Investment Banking Division at Paradigm Capital in Toronto.
