What advice would you give to current students at King’s?

My advice to current students is to know which part of Social Work they want to be involved in. I think it’s crucial to follow your passion so when you meet challenges you still have that drive because you care. Social work is a very wide field. So know where you want to go.

How did King’s help you get connected?

I started an organization and am connected to the professors and leadership at King’s. King’s has given me a base – a foundation – to help me settle in London as a new Canadian. Fellow students that went through the program are now working in the community and are part of my social network. In my work, I can connect with someone in my network who has had this King’s experience with me and together we can help that client.
