Manal Abaline is an international student from Morocco who is currently working toward her BASc in Computer Engineering. She is happy to help any students in need in order to get them to succeed in their classes.

During the Spring/Summer terms, Manal will host study groups as well as exams review session but you can also meet her individually either by booking a virtual appointment or by passing by one of our virtual drop-ins.


"As an international student and mentor, I believe that moving to a new country is an overwhelming experience with some unique hardships and struggles. If there is one thing that I desire most, it’s to share my knowledge, experiences with new students and guide them to their path to success. I’d be pleased to welcome you and answer your questions."
