TORONTO - The innocent bystander from Toronto who was gunned down in Calgary over the weekend was “fun, loving and adorable,” her former boss says.
Natasha Mohamed Farah, 26, stood out among the dozens of interns who passed through the doors of Toronto public relations firm That PR Thing Inc., owner Danielle Iversen said Monday.
“You can’t remember them all, but I remember her,” Iversen said. “I’m in shock. She came to work with me from Humber College. Everything she did, she did with perfection.”
Calgary Police received a call for gunfire around 3 a.m. Saturday and found Farah shot. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The last time Iversen spoke with Farah was in July through e-mail when Farah said she had moved to Calgary for a new job.
“She had a knack for PR. She was not a partier,” Iverson said. “She wanted to build her career.”
Farah worked for the PR firm from January to May 2012, arranging client meetings and editing press releases for clients, her LinkedIn page says.
