Melissa Oujani
Inclusive education student

“My degree gives us endless possibilities to work towards social inclusion, including everything from being a classroom teacher, to a teacher’s aide, working in community care or as job support worker. There’s always something we can do in different sectors.

Multiculturalism and social inclusion are very close to me. Through my career and volunteer experiences I'd like to break down barriers and empower people to be active community members with positive social values.”
