Dari-speaking Settlement and Employment Worker
My Name is Parvin Fatemi; originally from Iran and moved to Canada in 2010. I speak and read 5 languages fluently (English, Farsi, Dari, Azeri and Turkish). I got my Master of Science in Midwifery in Iran. Since 2015 I have been working directly with people in settlement and re-settlement service settings and provided help to a wide variety of individuals from various cultural, ethnic, and educational backgrounds.
I enjoy working within the community, re-settlement and settlement services, helping the newcomer immigrant & refugee families, Youth and Seniors, determining what their needs are, and then finding the right services to match.
Now I have started my work with Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House as Dari speaking Settlement and Employment Worker. I have a very nice feeling starting this position with Frog Hollow and joining its wonderful team, in which I would contribute my knowledge and skills to support the vulnerable Afghan refugees.
