Ayni Abdirabi



Ayni received one of ten Ron Larkin scholarships distributed in 2015. The Ron Larkin Scholarship is one of many ways the OCH Foundation helps Ottawa Community Housing tenants achieve their educational dreams.

Ayni is an extremely hard working individual who takes her own personal progression almost as seriously as the effort she puts into helping others. She has devoted much of her time to the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa over the past couple years and has been helping the Somali Youth Support Project for the past five. A true philanthropist and a natural leader, Ayni hopes to enter the nursing program at the University of Ottawa and to one day acquire her Master’s in the same field. Growing up as the child of a single mother has done nothing but motivate her to strive to be the best she can possibly be.
