I am a fourth-year psychology student with a minor in Counselling and Human Development. Currently, I am volunteering as a research assistant at the Sustainability, Identity, and Social Change Lab at SFU. Additionally, I am volunteering as a conversation circle facilitator and settlement mentor at Immigration Service Society of BC as well as a health coach at PainBC. Outside school and volunteering responsibilities, I am a full-time parent of two school aged children. Studying while parenting has been a challenging yet rewarding experience. I have been able to meet the demands of both the parent and student roles by being organized and willing to reach out to the resources that are available to me. In addition to English, I speak Kurdish and Arabic fluently.
I embrace the notion that career is a quest rather than a destination. Furthermore, many contextual factors including but not limited to gender, culture, sexual orientation, immigration status, and age influence career development and access to meaningful work. Therefore, I hope to empower individuals to make career decisions that contribute to their growth while accounting for the complexity of influences. I feel privileged to be part of a team that supports students in their journey through their career development. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the support Career Peer Educators offer.
