a registered dental hygienist for 2 years, working in Owen Sound.

 

Contributions

 

During my training at Alqonquin College in Ottawa, I found my passion for working with those less fortunate. Many of our clients were recent immigrants, which really touched me. I came to Canada with my parents when I was 2 years old (from Chile), and faced many obstacles. It was such a great opportunity to speak Spanish with my clients and provide them with care. The dental hygiene program also offered an opportunity to provide dental care for street youth at a downtown walk-in clinic. It was such a great way to give back to the community, and walk away with so much!
