Meet Sharona, Our New Practicum Student

Tell us a bit about yourself!

I am a fourth year social work student and I am a feminist.

What is your personal definition of feminism?

My definition of feminism is that it is a movement for anyone, to build equality for everyone.

What brought you to the Women’s Centre of Calgary?

I found the Women’s Centre in a less than romantic way- it was in my school’s database for practicum options. However, what has made me fall in love with the Center is our commitment to building community. It is exciting to see women (and girls) connecting with each other, making friends, and learning together even through a global pandemic.  This is such a great community and I am thrilled to be a part of it.

What’s one thing you hope to learn at the Women’s Centre?

I hope to learn more about women’s issues, and how intersectionality can effect us all differently (e.g. race, age, ability, etc.).

Describe a woman who you admire or who has influenced your life

A (young) woman I admire is my little sister. At the young age of ten, she has taught me so many important lessons. Not only is she a total trend-setter (she cut her hair short and I followed suit a week later), but she is also unconditionally loving and caring. She reminds me how important it is to stay kind, in a world that may encourage alternative behaviour.
