Why She Loves Being a Provider
“This type of work is all about drawing out an individual’s potential at its maximum and articulating ways that can make the environment immensely serene and full of harmony.”
“As a social worker my purpose is to serve anyone that needs support through difficult experiences in life. I have been successful because I have learned to address client’s needs first as they embrace their journey as new immigrants. I know what it is like to be in a totally new and unfamiliar culture. I am very understanding and compassionate with immigrant and marginalized community; I can help bridge the cultural gap. My purpose as a social worker is to help people identify their strengths and believe in themselves to reach their full potential.”
