I am a youth community worker here at EMYC and a first-year student at Sheridan College with a passion for basketball. I previously enrolled in the pre-health program but then decided to study Child and Youth Work. I began my journey with Erin Mills Youth Centre in 2014 by doing the Recreational Leadership program which taught me a lot of valuable lessons. The best part of my job at EMYC is definitely being able to connect with the youth and being able to be someone they can speak their mind to without the fear of being criticized.
