"As early as I can remember, I have always had a strong desire to help others, and so I pursued an undergraduate degree in Psychology. When concluding that individuals cannot be studied, and subsequently explained, as if they are in isolation of one another, I took on Health and Society as a double major. These two disciplines combined have allowed me to attain the capability of looking at a given situation from a variety of aspects, and in turn, strengthen my critical thinking and analytical abilities.
"Since graduating from this program, I have successfully completed a Master of Public Health, and am now employed at Reena and Community Living York South, as a Community Support Worker. Being in a position to provide support, whether I take the role of advocate, counsellor, or role model for community appropriate behaviour, is extremely gratifying to me."
