My passion and compassion for people will make a great change maker
Georgian College
Social Service Worker
I want to be a Changemaker because...

Inequality and oppression are the two things that keep me up and night. I believe the gap can be bridged when more changemakers collaborate and develop innovative ideas on how this can be achieved.
