Rojan Bassiri - Social Media Manager

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto, passionately
working towards a degree in psychology with a minor in mental health.
Over the past five years, I have volunteered at Mehrvarzan Charity,
assisting disadvantaged families by providing essential supplies.

 

Additionally, I gained valuable experience working at Yas Nursing Home,
where I supported residents with their daily living activities. These
experiences have fuelled my aspiration to become a therapist, driven by a
desire to positively impact individuals' well-being.

More Than Just My Work

Creative writing is a safe space for me, whether I'm writing poetry or
crafting stories. When I express my emotions and thoughts through words,
it helps me feel at ease and grounded.

 

This also allows me to connect with others going through similar experiences. The main reason I write is to bring people together. I want others to read my words and feel less alone because we're all in this together.
