“I value that Torontonians do not need to live in fear of each other – the city feels like it is a place where I belong.”

Toronto as Home
Woodbine Beach is a special place for Mohamed – a spot where he says he felt his first real connection to Toronto. In the winter this is where he runs and in the summer where he cycles. He describes himself as an outdoor person – so living in this area is perfect.
Connection with the Past
Mohamed’s mother - Yemma as he used to call her - passed away in 2002, and her baking is something he remembers fondly. As a young boy, he enjoyed makrout, an Algerian sweet that she used to make. Still today they are his favorite dessert, and he has learned how to make them. Makrout remind him of both his mother and his country of birth.
