Special Projects Manager - Canada C3 Legacy & Alumni

Tara Mascarenhas

Originally from India but brought up in England’s home counties, Tara’s passion for equity and equality led her to work post-university in international humanitarian aid and development.  Over a decade spent working on post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation in Africa and Asia saw Tara and her husband needing a place to rest. In 2011, they discovered the delightful Gatineau Hills, Qc, where they love raising their kids ensconced between the ski hills and the river.

Tara joined the Students on Ice Foundation in 2016 when drawn to work on Canada C3, Coast to Coast to Coast, quite the immersion for this new Canadian.  Realizing that this expedition of a lifetime was in fact just the beginning of the journey, Tara continues to work on the legacy of C3 and other special projects for the Foundation.

Five fun facts about Tara are that she plays the violin, she once modelled at Stanley Kubrick’s house, she has (still) never visited the US, she owns the dance floor and the moniker Friday Tara.
