This week we are featuring an update from alumna Raissa Dickinson. All alumni are encouraged to submit short bios on their current activities, which will be featured on the new Centre for Dialogue website, and potentially featured in posts to the alumni blog and Facebook page.
Yveta Avramova (Fall 2011) is a 4th year student majoring in Psychology. She has been interested in the area of Social Sciences for a long time and more particularly in issues such as violence, discrimination, inequality and mental health. Yveta is also a volunteer at the Intergroup Relations and Social Justice Lab at Simon Fraser University. Her future plans are to study Law. The Semester in Dialogue has helped to improve her communication skills and also has given her many opportunities to step outside of her comfort zone (while providing a safe and supportive environment) to grow in the direction of her goals.
For instructions on how to compose and submit your own bio, see our earlier blog post.
