The York University Alumni Board has recognized four distinguished York students for their academic excellence and student leadership.
This year's recipients include alumna Meena Shanmuganathan (iBBA ’21) – Alumni Silver Jubilee Scholarship, alumna Anjelica Ramsewack (BA ’21) – Alumni Golden GRADitude Award, alumnus Moboluwajidide Joseph (BA ’21) – Alumni Golden GRADitude Award and incoming student Ishi Madan – Harry Arthurs Alumni Families Entrance Scholarship.
An avid writer and animator, alumna Madeleine Patton started her own original animated series on YouTube at the age of 12. When she was 14 years old, she wrote a book about a young, limping lioness in the wild who felt romantic love with her best friend.
After studying screenwriting at York, Madeleine decided to revisit the story she had written as a teenager and reimagine it as an animated series and her LGBTQ+ web series My Pride was born.
From funding desperately needed scholarships and research to creating world-class facilities and groundbreaking teaching methods, donations to York University help make it one of Canada’s leading universities.
