She is passionate about stories people don’t know about and loves making them known. Her dream is to work in a field that supports underrepresented communities, in Canada and around the world.

This series of lessons and activities aims to support students in understanding the impact of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on immigration policies in Canada. Each lesson will engage with the nuances different groups face when migrating to and living in Canada.
