I want to be a Changemaker because...

     I believe that the most rewarding type of work is something you are passionate about. Something that gets you out of bed in the morning and never feels like a job. With that being said, I could see myself in a type of work setting that invloves tackling Poverty and Homelessness. The risk of our current housing crisis in Canada and unattainable markets have caused many Canadians to choose between the most basic necessities in life such as: food, utilities, and personal needs. The housing crisis needs to be solved before the generations to come suffer immensely. On the other hand,  I am very passionate about the Mental Health and Addictions path. While we work through our current health crisis we are dealing with a drug epidemic, also mental health has suffered greatly with Canadians. I believe working in this field with me insight that can serve the ones struggling with both Mental Health and Addicitons. I have a interest in exploring alternatives to a safer supply of street drugs, and safe injection sites, while I appreciate the idea of counselling services and rehabilitation.
