It was over 10 years ago that I completed my own practicum with Life Strategies Ltd. during my undergraduate studies with Kwantlen Polytechnical University. Although we’ve hosted several students, both at the undergraduate and graduate level, it wasn’t until 2020 that we’ve been able to welcome back KPU students.
This summer, we’re excited to have two students join our remote team: Farheen Hassany and Jessie Dhami.
Farheen Hassany is a 4th year student in the BSc Applied Psychology program at KPU, who is excited to be doing her practicum at Life Strategies! She is interested in neuroscience, healthcare, minority rights, vulnerable populations, education, and counseling. In her free time, she enjoys volunteering in the community, nature walks, baking and browsing through memes on Instagram.
Jessie Dhami is currently attending her final semester at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, completing a Bachelor of Science in Applied Psychology, accompanied with a counselling minor. After completion, she will be pursuing a career in medicine, as an Orthopaedic/Trauma Surgeon. Being a first generation Canadian, she grew up in a very cultured home with parents that had been raised in a different manner back in India. Over the years, after facing multiple cultural conflicts, she developed my own identity with the perfect combination of both cultures which not only showed how proud she is of my Sikh background but also my Canadian values.
