This is Alison, Catherine, Jasmina, Jay, Shivani, and Steph!
We are 6 young Canadian women ready for adventure and excited to learn. We all come from varied backgrounds and are excited to be working for Pueblito on their MyBEST project in Pearl Lagoon. Alison will be the Early Childhood Education Intern and has just completed a Master’s in ECE. Jay is the Parent Liaison and studied Comparative Politics. Shivani is the Math and Science Intern and studied Global Health and Biology. Jasmina is also the Math and Science intern and has just completed a post-graduate degree in International Development. Stephanie is the Gender Equality Intern and Catherine is the Project Support Intern and they have both also completed the post-graduate degree in International Development. Our diverse backgrounds and experiences will only strengthen our capacity as a group to work with the teachers at PLACE (Pearl Lagoon’s Academy for Excellence) and help to improve bilingual education in indigenous communities in Pearl Lagoon. We look forward to the work to come!
