Criminology

Biography:

My experience of the ineffectiveness of the justice system as a teenager made me vow to dedicate my life to navigating the justice system to bring about equity and protection of marginalized individuals rights. Despite relocating to Canada, I did not deviate from that mission. It has led me to obtain a Diploma in Community and Justice Services from Humber College, completed a BA in Criminology and Criminal Justice with a concentration in Law from Carleton University and currently studying Masters in Criminology and Social Justice at Ryerson University. With my academic background, I have been privileged to work with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Developing strategies to help them break the silence of the abuse they faced and regain their lost voices. It was such an exceptional experience. I have also worked as a Settlement Worker for refugees and immigrants, connecting them to community resources and facilitating their smooth integration into the country. I am in the process of acquiring the necessary qualifications to pursue a career in Law. The goal is to become an Immigration Lawyer, using the law to advocate for the rights of persecuted individuals while ensuring their easy integration into Canada. I am also interested in assisting them in achieving their personal and professional goals through the legal system and community agencies. This is because there is something inherently fulfilling knowing that I have been a positive influence on others.
