4th Year BSW Student - Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU)
My name is Tabassum and I am in my fourth year of the social work program at Toronto Metropolitan University. Much of my previous experience is related to direct practice with children and seniors, so I am super excited to see where my placement with MCASS will take me in furthering my knowledge and practice skills!
As a Muslim of colour, I know firsthand that systems are difficult to navigate and are set up in ways that steer minority communities away from accessing resources. I hope that my work with MCASS brings a positive change to the Muslim community in Toronto and helps MCASS get closer to their goal of being a recognized non-profit organization under the Ontario government.
I have always been social justice oriented and am so happy to have the opportunity to work closely with an organization that so closely parallels my own values.
