" Not many people can say they are trying to work themselves out of a job, but working in the non-profit world is exactly that. But I wouldn’t change it for anything. My career in the not-for profit sector is truly an expression of my deep passions for the most vulnerable and marginalized, and I truly believe that Redeemer professors and experiential learning set me up for success. With the support and connections of my professors, I was able to land a co-op position with World Vision Canada in God’s timing. This was literally my dream job – getting paid to make a difference in the world. How could I be so lucky? I was able to apply what I learned in the classroom to real life, while also learning about the realities about charity work by showing up everyday. I don’t think there was a day during my co-op that I didn’t want to go to work. Working for the not-for-profit is not for the faint of heart, but leaving each day feeling you made a small difference in the world and contributing to God’s kingdom carries me through each day. "
