Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series recipient profile: Mina Ariana

Each week in Just the Fax, we will profile one of the recipients of our 2020 Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series. This week’s recipient is Mina Ariana.

Mina received scholarships from sponsors WiMC/MCA Hamilton Niagara, Uponor and the MCAC Associates. She is a student at the British Columbia Institute of Technology and is doing her Masters of Engineering in Building Science.

"One of the challenges I face every day (and for as long as I can remember) is the minor representation of women both in engineering and in the construction industry and the types of expectations/stereotypes that come with being a woman," she says. “I believe that through improving myself and by climbing the ladder of knowledge, experiences and respect, I can do my part for a future of equality among all genders in engineering and construction.”

Mina works as an estimator at MCAC member company Davidson Bros. Mechanical.
