It's supposed to be one of the most "unlivable" cities in the world, but Sadia finds that livability is about as simple as the bus routes and schedules in Dhaka.Sadia studied Architecture as an undergraduate student in upstate New York in the US and later worked as a cost estimator for a rebar supplier company near Syracuse, NY. When she returned to Dhaka, Sadia worked as an architect for a few years before eventually working on the first light rail project in Dhaka, the new MRT line, drafting electrical and mechanical system drawings for its stations. She left that role to join the Urban Studies graduate program at SFU, during which time Sadia worked briefly as a designer/researcher for a non-profit organization in Vancouver where she helped create toolkits for social procurement among developers and suppliers in ongoing development projects.Sadia's current projects in Dhaka continue to be inspired by her love for architecture, sustainable design and innovative transit-oriented city planning that help create more accessible, equitable, sustainable and livable urban spaces.Resources: Meet Steve Tornes: https://www.sfu.ca/vancity-office-community-engagement/about/updates/all-updates/meet-steve-tornes.htmlMapping Daily Mobility in Metro Vancouver: http://summit.sfu.ca/item/18639Embodied Fear, Perceived Safety and Transit-Based Mobility Among Women of Color in Metro Vancouver: http://summit.sfu.ca/item/18639Fresh Voices Report: http://freshvoices.ca/reports/2015-report/The Untokening: http://www.untokening.org/summaryDignity Institute: https://thrivancegroup.com/dignity-institute
