Today Rebecca had a great time chatting with students at the Dream It, Be It event hosted by Soroptimist International of Victoria Westshore. The event was a great opportunity to showcase opportunities and careers for young women and gender non conforming individuals between the ages of 15-20. Students came from high schools all over Victoria to learn about different career path and attend workshops on self esteem, budgeting, resume building and so much more.

Rebecca had a great time chatting about her job and why she loves what she does. It was awesome to share how knowledge and lived experience can be huge assets when it come to finding your career path.

Umbrella is grateful to all the volunteers who put this wonderful and empowering event together. We can’t wait for the next one!
