Born in Moshi, Tanzania, Munira Premji – affectionately known as Muni – has spent her last 34 years in Toronto.
Those around her describe her as having an infectious personality – a passionate, caring person who connects with people and lives her life to the fullest. She is an accomplished HR practitioner, accredited coach and community leader. She is well-known for her unique jewelry, colourful socks, home-cooked tacos and big hugs.
She inspired the phrase “pulling a Muni” after repeatedly making things happen that no one else thought possible (e.g. getting march madness tickets in Chicago in 2002 after they were apparently completely sold out). We all look for her to “pull a Muni” once again in 2012 by beating two cancers, sharing her journey and inspiring others to do the same.
