Tasmine joined Humber’s Social Services Worker (SSW) program after realizing she had a passion for helping others find strength and resilience and hoped to be able to further her knowledge and grow as a professional in the field.
“I entered the SSW program unsure of how I would do, and unsure of myself. I left the program a different person. I made many friends, my passion was appreciated, and I was supported throughout by the faculty. The experience allowed me to grow and gain valuable skills, especially in crisis intervention, case management, anti-oppression and community programming.”
She is currently working as a Community Programs Coordinator at Victim Services Toronto, where she worked as a crisis counsellor for nearly 3 years before changing roles. Tasmine got hired at Victim Services after her student placement in 2018. She is also in the process of applying for an MSW program to continue her education. She hopes to one day become a professor or be involved in social work program development. Outside of work, Tasmine does social media content creation, and enjoys the outdoors.
