Before choosing Criminal Justice for my undergrad, I was confused and uncertain about what I wanted to pursue. I always found myself questioning my environment, institutions, and social problems and have always been curious and observant. In the last year of high school, I became interested in the social sciences and after doing some research, I found the Criminal Justice program at Humber.
The four years I spent at Humber were amazing! I learned so much about myself, and successfully completed the program with honours. The instructors in the Criminal Justice faculty were engaging and dedicated to expanding our knowledge. To this day I incorporate the lessons I learned from the amazing instructors in my life.
After graduating from Humber, I obtained my master’s degree in Immigration and Settlement Studies from Toronto Metropolitain University (TMU), formerly known as Ryerson. My experience writing my thesis at Humber College helped me immensely to complete my major research project as a requirement of my master’s program. With the help and support from my previous lecturers at Humber, I was motivated to continue my education.
In 2021, I graduated from TMU, and am now working for the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, and still working towards my goal of starting my own non-profit and getting into policy!
