Community Services Officer - Social Services

Aleena Khan

Hi, my name is Aleena Khan, and I am excited to be a part of the MCASS team as one of the Community Services Officer – Social Services! I am currently in Grade 12 and want to pursue a career in psychology. My role at Muslim Children’s Aid and Support Services (MCASS) allows me to explore my career path and make a difference in my community.
I am highly passionate about creating a difference around the world in terms of promoting equality and helping those around me. As a French tutor for the Study Buddies program encourages me to share my passions and skills with others. I am able to help students develop a passion for learning by teaching them valuable lessons about school and themselves. This experience has enabled me to learn about others while discovering different aspects of myself.
Helping Muslims create a community where they can feel valued and accepted, is something I aspire to accomplish through this position. I look forward to changing the negative perceptions of Muslims and hope to empower those around me through this beautiful opportunity.
