Hajni is a lawyer who finished teacher’s college and started a PhD program in political science in Hungary before moving to Canada in 2006. She worked in the Trent International Program office before joining the New Canadians Centre.
She loves her job and thinks that the mission of the NCC and the amazing team makes it a very special place to work. Hajni takes pride and feels honoured to be able to help immigrant integration in Peterborough. Hajni loves Canada but is not able to get used to the length of the winter and the amount of the hockey games shown on TV quite yet.
In 2014, Hajni was the recipient of the inaugural ‘4 under 40’ award at the annual Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce awards. The ‘4 Under 40’ Profiles are designed to recognize four individuals in our community who are under the age of 40 and who are making their mark in the Peterborough area.
In 2017, Hajni received the Paul Harris Award from the Rotary Club of Peterborough Kawartha. This is the highest recognition given by Rotary and recognizes those who exemplify the motto of Rotary which is the giving of “Service Above Self”.
