Our Team

General Intelligences is a non-profit organization originally conceived in April 2020 by Magda Wojtara, whose desire was to make “common sense” more common by demystifying unwritten rules in the academic and professional world for fellow students.

We have an amazing team which continues to grow, and we take on seasonal interns as well. We have a rigorous application cycle for our internship process and for our team with around a third of applicants formally accepted.

Moving to Texas from Nepal at the age of 4 years and then to Canada at the age of 9 allowed me to see how income levels and ethnicity has an impact on students and the education system first hand.

I hope to learn more about the inequalities that exist within our own communities. I have a semi understanding of it all but would like be immerse myself more into discussions and what we can do. I hope to learn from other peoples experiences in order to address the lack of cultural understanding. Too many people experience racism, prejudice, and xenophobia worldwide
