    After graduating from the BMus program at Queen’s, I now currently work as a centre rep for the Royal Conservatory of Music in Pickering, Ont., and manage a music school called The Song Spot in Whitby, Ont. We have almost 300 students and continue to grow each year. I am currently enrolled in the Music Business Management course at Durham College and cannot wait to expand my career from there! I continue to play music regularly in the GTA with various classical and contemporary groups. I hope my fellow alumni have continued their passion for music!

    Digvijay Mehra

    – Artsci’14

    Spring 2022

    I got married this year (on April Fools’ Day!) to Zahin Hussain (Artsci’16). We met while we were at Queen’s, kept in touch, and started dating in 2020 when Zahin moved back to Canada (after working in Vietnam, Philippines, and South Korea). We were quite involved in the Queen’s community during our time there: Zahin was the President of AIESEC Queen’s; I was the President of the Queen’s International Affairs Association; we were both in the executive of the Queen’s South Asian Association; and I was recognized with the Tricolour Award. I have been appointed as the Government of Ontario’s representative in India, where I will be leading the Ontario Trade and Investment Offices.
