Education: Psychology, York University - CA
SLV.Global Placement: Foundation Placement, May 2018
Current Role: "I have started training as a Frosh leader, a social orientation for the students entering their first year of university."
Tell us about your SLV.Global experience: "My time spent with SLV.Global was nothing short of amazing. This organization works day and night to improve the lives of Sri Lankan citizens that are truly in need. The experience of planning sessions, following them through and seeing the appreciative looks on all of the service users improved my skills of leadership, training in teaching and taught me more about compassion than any other job I've worked. The staff is welcoming, loving and passionate about their work, which spreads into all of the work we did. I am blessed to have been accepted into this placement and will forever chersh my time with SLV.Global."
Tell us what you gained from your SLV.Global Placement: "Before my placement with SLV.Global, I had no experience with teaching or really sitting down and planning out sessions for the better of a specific group. As my major in University is psychology, working hands on with mental health patients really allowed me to realize that this is the path I want to take."
