Western mourns death of Medical Sciences student


The Western community is mourning the death of Sara Ali, 21, a fourth-year Bachelor of Medical Sciences student, who died Monday, March 4, in London.

Sara is survived by her parents, Osman Ali and Nahid Swareldahab, and brother, Mahmoud Ali.

Sara’s family said her innate conscientiousness and intellectual prowess were only exceeded by her boundless capacity for human compassion. She was an exemplary figure of trust; she was the emotional anchor to friends and family.

Sara set as her mission to leave the world a better place than when she had entered it.

Western will lower the flag on University College on Thursday, March 14, in Sara’s honour.

Western reminds its campus community that counselling services are always available to assist faculty, students and staff. Visit the Health and Wellness website for help today.
