Student in Social Service Work


I am completing my diploma to become a social service worker at Centennial College.  As a single mother or two, having an autistic son and experiencing first hand the challenges of being on financial assistance, I understand and sympathize with the difficulties many people and families have to live through.  This personal involvment in the social service world has been the spark that ignited the passion in my heart to help individuals in need.  That is my goal, to fulfill a working position that makes a difference in the world of people and families in need of help.
