I am a 20 year old biochemistry student, working in the engineering field, who is living in Toronto for a year to complete an internship, at a top pharmaceutical company, as part of my program. I would make a great role model and mentor for females wanting to enter STEM, but are hesitant or want guidance. I worked as part of a national charity to encourage youth to participate in STEM including disadvantaged and minority children. I am kind and attentive, passionate for caring and teaching the next generation.
I have a long history working with children. I started with babysitting 2 children, one male (4) and one female (6) for a year. I would pick them up from the school bus, prepare dinner, assist with homework and tutoring, take them on trips to the park, get them ready and put them to bed, and more. Additionally, I volunteered for a few years and eventually worked at a University Engineering and Science programs for a total of 4 years. During this time I worked with kids between the ages of 3 and 13, superivising them during the day, bringing them to university laboratories to teach them different STEM subject such as biology and coding, supervising them at the pool, etc. In recent years, I have volunteered at CHEO's palative care home, The Roger Neilson House. I spend time entertaining and caring for children with a large variety of disabilities, adapting activities to their needs.
