I recently graduated from Ryerson University with a Bachelor of Social Work Degree including Honours. My practical experience includes working with the Anti-Violence Program at the 519 Church Community Centre to develop and facilitate a unique workshop for youth titled "SNAP!"(Stop it, Name it, Advocate, Participate!). The workshop provided youth with seven steps to become advocates against Homophobia. In addition, I have facilitated workshops with Teens, Educating and Confronting Homophobia (T.E.A.C.H.), worked as a camp counselor for New Star Children's Theatre and served as the Public Relations Representative for Kiwanis Educated Youth (K.E.Y.). I am interested in subscribing to "The Drum Beat" because of my passion for using the arts to promote and protect human rights worldwide.
