Shalamar has always had a passion for working with at-risk youth and children in general. Her upbringing allowed her to see the world from many different points of view which is her drive for trying to make sure the voices of the voiceless youth are heard. She completed her studies in Chid and Youth Work at Georgian College and has worked in the field for the past 5. She has also worked as a foster parent for 9 years. Shalamar enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking and going for walks.
