I’m a young woman with a strong desire to support those in need. Throughout my adolescence and into my adulthood, I frequently visited hospitals. I have had type 2 diabetes since I was a young child. Although my family is from El Salvador and Nicaragua, I was born in the beautiful city of Toronto, Ontario. As a society’s crown ward, I was involved in the child welfare system and am now making the transition to independence. I discovered that I required a lot of assistance in figuring out where to seek care for my physical and mental health.
I am employed by the community and justice services sector. I want to raise awareness of issues like how underpaid and understaffed hospital employees are. We must make sure that healthcare professionals are treated fairly and with respect.
