Aboriginal woman excels at SFU after strong start at Continuing Studies Jessica Humchitt, from the Heiltsuk Nation of Bella Bella on the central coast of BC, is living her dream today. In September 2013, she’ll begin her fourth year of an undergraduate degree in health sciences at SFU. It all began with our Aboriginal PreHealth Program.

Jessica Humchitt, graduate, Aboriginal PreHealth Program and Evelyn Locker, SFU resident Elder.

Six years ago, Humchitt was doing administrative work she enjoyed at a health clinic in Bella Bella, but she dreamed of going to university so she could do more—for her career, her family, and her community. A university tour convinced her it was time to take the next step. Shortly afterward, she received an email about the Aboriginal Pre-Health Program at SFU. It is designed specifically to help First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students who are considering careers in health care. “It just fit,” she says. She applied, got in, and, in August 2009, she and her three children moved to Vancouver. Humchitt completed the program with 14 other Aboriginal students. In addition to teaching science and study skills, her professors prepared her and her classmates for the unfamiliar, often overwhelming world of a large public university. Humchitt doesn’t think she could have done her first year at SFU without the Aboriginal Pre-Health Program. “It’s just such a different world,” she says. “Having an environment that’s supportive and encouraging is really key.” Ultimately, Humchitt hopes to make a difference in her home community of Bella Bella one day. She hopes to either continue with cancer research or work in policy development for maternal health care. “I want to help people somehow,” she says. “That was my main goal for going to school— reaching out.”

SFU NOW grad headed for law school Reza Nazarinia, graduate, SFU NOW.

Thanks to SFU NOW: Nights or Weekends, a Vancouver sales manager is pursuing his dream of advocating for others.

Reza Nazarinia has built a successful career—but a few years ago, he decided it was time for a change. “I have a lot more to offer,” Nazarinia says. “You want to affect people’s lives.” After a lifetime of standing up for the “little guy”—Nazarinia stands at a towering 6’2”—he decided to pursue a career in law. The next step was simple: finish his undergraduate degree so he could apply to law school. His wife suggested SFU NOW because of its flexibility and because it would allow him to go to class—he wanted interaction he couldn’t get through Athabasca courses. Nazarinia applied, was accepted, and transferred some business courses he’d completed at Langara College several years prior. He started his Bachelor of Arts in the fall of 2010, and, taking four courses per semester while balancing his job and his family, he graduated in only two years with a double minor in political science and sociology.

He admits it was tough sometimes—but his dream of becoming a lawyer kept him from quitting. “You have to have a goal,” he says. “You’ve got to know why you’re doing something.” Today, having applied to law school, Reza is eagerly awaiting the future—and he’s feeling prepared because of the writing and critical thinking skills he sharpened at SFU. He admits with a smile that he has a few more grey strands of hair than when he started, but he’s excited to begin using his sales skills for a noble cause. “It was definitely worth it.”

Professional finds perfect fit in Career Development Practitioner Certificate Like many professionals, Magdalena Mot didn’t know what her dream job was until her career was underway. SFU Continuing Studies helped her change course. Today, her dream job is her reality.

Magdalena Mot, graduate, Career Development Practitioner Certificate.

Mot completed a Master of Arts in Slavic studies thinking she would teach—but her career didn’t go as planned. “When I graduated from McGill, there was no cute and perfect job waiting for me out there,” she says. “It was a while until I realized that there are so many different components that one has to juggle before one gets to be even close to that dream job.” With her family relocating, Mot decided to be practical, taking a management position in Vancouver—quite different from the educational position she had envisioned. But as she hired and trained new employees, she realized something: she loved it— and, according to her colleagues, she was quite good at it. The layoff that came at the end of 2010 led to an important decision: if she was going back to work, she would do something she loved.

In early 2011, after some research, she began SFU Continuing Studies’ Career Development Practitioner Certificate, and she found it “nearly a perfect match.” She loved the practical, hands-on nature of what she was learning, and she’s confident it’s helped her become the professional she is today. She found work as an employment counsellor at Back in Motion only a month after graduating, and she finds her work incredibly rewarding. “All those people that come back to my office with a smile to say ‘thank you’ are worth a lot more than one may think,” she says. “My days are simply made by those little success stories.”

Dialogue grads engage Vancouver residents in recycling initiative Two graduates of our Certificate in Dialogue and Civic Engagement are helping Vancouver residents make our city greener.

Cheryn Wong and Murray Mollard, graduates, Certificate in Dialogue and Civic Engagement.

Murray Mollard, a lawyer, and Cheryn Wong, who works in the non-profit sector, met as students in our certificate program in the fall of 2011. In their conversations, they learned that recycling organic matter was important to both of them. Mollard already composted for his family’s garden. Wong wanted to compost—but as a resident of a high-rise in False Creek, there was no infrastructure in place. Mollard and Wong decided to find a solution to this problem. Using the dialogue and engagement tools they learned in the program, they organized a community event called Talking Trash: A Community Conversation on Recycling Organics. “The point of dialogue is to create some kind of positive action,” Mollard says—and it did. Thirty people attended the Talking Trash conversation, after which Mollard and Wong decided to organize a weekly drop-off spot for organic waste in the Olympic Village area. Once a week throughout 2012, volunteers hosted the drop-off spot. Citizens from as far as Kitsilano and the West End came to recycle their organics. Knowing their solution was temporary, Mollard and Wong got funding from Vancouver’s Greenest City Fund and Vancity to create a more sustainable solution to the need for organic recycling options. Their new project is called More Than Just Trashtalk: From Dialogue to Action. “Our job is to assist recycling champions in any way they need our help,” Mollard says.

Sustainable Community Development Certificate

Your community can overcome sustainability challenges.

All organizations, however they define sustainability, need to incorporate it into their practices—but there are several challenges. One is developing community systems that promote balance, which requires thinking and acting across several disciplines and sectors.

Another challenge is today’s economy. As decisionmakers think about cost savings and the bottom line, funding for sustainability planning and programming may disappear—but sustainability doesn’t need to. It just needs to look different. It might not even be called sustainability. Turn ideas into reality This applied professional program will teach you to translate principles into action using solutions and strategies that advance all six areas of community capital—physical, ecological, social, human, cultural, and economic—while focusing on tactful, strategic approaches to making sure sustainability stays relevant in the eyes of community leaders and members. Our instructors, who are among the most experienced, fresh-thinking sustainability leaders, policy-makers, planners, and decision-makers in Canada, will share established sustainability practices with you. They’ll also share tactics and strategies that make sustainability feasible today—including financial and social savings as motivators, reframing sustainability to support new priorities, using the economy to lead, and creating new alliances.

Certificate in Restorative Justice

Restoration is never beyond hope.

Conflict is inevitable in any organization, community, or family—but it doesn’t have to destroy relationships. In addition to the challenges it presents, conflict is an opportunity to learn, grow, and better understand one another.

Restorative justice, which takes a community well-being approach to conflict resolution, is in growing demand in the justice, policing, corrections, education, community, and family service sectors. Rather than focusing on blame and punishment, restorative justice advocates building understanding, relationships, healing, and restoration. On the premise that conflict causes harm, it gives victims a voice and holds wrongdoers directly responsible for the damage they cause. Victims, offenders, and community members reach solutions that allow them to continue to live together in safer, healthier environments. Learn to bring communities back together

Interpretation and translation grad hopes to bridge the gap between doctors and patients Our Diploma in Interpretation Rose Jen, graduate, and Translation provided a way Diploma in Interpretation for one young woman from and Translation. Richmond to combine her love of language and learning with her desire to help people. After spending several years in South Africa, Rose Jen dreamed of giving relief to those who had been silenced by post-traumatic stress disorder. She decided she would start by helping people like them learn to speak. After completing a degree in speech pathology, Jen planned on medical school, but reconsidered when a friend had told her about SFU’s diploma program. Fluent in four languages, Jen had done some informal translation work in high school, and the career possibilities called to her. She could be working in less than a year. Jen began the Mandarin Chinese/English interpretation and translation program in 2011, graduating eight months later. She says the lectures, assignments, interpreting field trips, and memory drills helped her become a better translator, interpreter, and learner. She hopes to set up her own practice one day. In the meantime, she says, the hope and encouragement of her instructors drives her forward. She’s excited about her plans to translate for scientific journals and interpret at conferences. “To be immersed in that kind of environment—swimming in the pool of knowledge—it makes me really happy just thinking about it,” says Jen with a smile. She also plans to use her skills to help people, as she’s always dreamed of doing—though a little differently than she once planned. She wants to be the bridge between patients and doctors who don’t speak the same language. “Misinformation can be devastating,” Jen says. “If I can be a good interpreter—and really get the information across—I think, in a way, I’m helping.”

SFU helping West End retiree invest in the community SFU’s Seniors Program Scott Ricker, liberal arts student. is allowing a West End man to pursue a passion he discovered only after a long career in public health: giving back to the community. Scott Ricker got his first taste of community work a few years after he’d retired and moved to Surrey, BC. He joined the Surrey Planning Commission, the Cloverdale Community Association, and other community groups, which showed him how much he enjoyed making a difference. “You have to give back,” he says. “The community is only as good as you make it.” Ricker and his wife later moved to Lytton, BC, where he joined the town council. After returning to Vancouver, Ricker continued his community involvement—and the more active he became, the more he thought he should learn. His son, an SFU graduate, recommended the Seniors Program, and as soon as Ricker took his first course, a six-week lecture series on economics with Ted Cohn, he was hooked. One course turned into several, Ricker says, and he was soon asked to join the SFU Seniors Program advisory council. Later, Ricker was asked to serve on the executive board of the SFU Seniors Lifelong Learners Society, which helps foster communication between its members and the university. One of the most important things he’s learned in his studies is how to be a good listener. “I think that’s the key to any successful negotiation,” Ricker says. “You can’t get to ‘yes’ if you don’t know what the problem is.”

In September 2012, he put his listening and leadership skills to work in a new post as president of the SFU Seniors Lifelong Learners Society. As a true lifelong learner, he’s a natural fit.

Grad working for top Canadian PR firm Thanks to SFU Continuing Sasha Perrin, graduate, Studies’ intensive Public Public Relations Relations Certificate, Sasha Certificate. Perrin is doing a job she loves: creating the news as a communications consultant at Hill + Knowlton Strategies, one of Canada’s top PR and public affairs firms. After finishing a Bachelor of Arts in English and Communication at SFU in 2010, Perrin knew she needed some practical, hands-on training to enter her field of choice. A series of informational interviews led her to choose the PR program at her alma mater. She chose it for its reputation and because it would allow her to enter the workforce quickly. “I thought it would be the perfect addition to my degree,” she says. She was right. “What I really liked about the program is that it focuses on real-world training as opposed to strictly theory. Your professors are individuals who work in the field and know first-hand job expectations…The work is reflective of what you actually do on the job.” Perrin received a job offer while completing her practicum. A year and a half later, she’s already moved on to a more senior position, and she loves the creativity she can bring to her work. “Whether you’re creating campaigns, key messages, or crisis plans, there is always an element of knowing your client’s brand and crafting exactly what they need. Instead of finding the story, you have the chance to make the story,” she says. “I enjoy the fast-paced atmosphere of the PR field. There is always something going on, and I will be sticking with it for a long time. I like the fact that my job incorporates my skills and hobbies and I have the chance to build relationships, be creative, and be an advisor to someone.”

If you’re new to the field, the program will prepare you to begin a career in technical writing or communication.

Learn to tell the stories that matter—in a medium that matters.

As newspapers across the continent shut down, it’s obvious that the old media communication channels aren’t working anymore. We still want to know what’s happening around us and why it matters, but instead of watching the news or reading the paper, we turn to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and blogs. This new technology has made reporters of everyone. But effective journalism makes new media reporting compelling, informative, and readable.

We’ve designed the program to meet the need for web- and media-savvy journalists: it’s for writers, travelers, photographers, videographers, and community and non-profit supporters who are exploring new revenue streams on a freelance basis.

Writer’s Studio grad now says, ‘I am a writer’ Claire De Boer has wanted to be Claire De Boer, graduate, a writer since she was a little The Writer’s Studio. girl. It took The Writer’s Studio to make her realize she already was one. “I realized when I was at school that it was the thing I loved to do and was best at,” she says. But as she got older, the dream went on the back burner. In university, with her head buried in textbooks, she couldn’t imagine wanting to write stories for fun in her spare time. Still, as she built her career in marketing, journalism, and PR, she dreamed of something more—something that would truly make her a writer. She found out about The Writer’s Studio in her 30s, and it sounded like a wonderful fit—she loved the idea of being part of a writing community, and of being mentored by a published author. But again, life got in the way, and she decided to wait. It was several years before De Boer found the drive to go after her dream. “I just said, ‘Enough! This is my dream; this is what I want to do. I’m just going to go for it,’” she says. She attended an information session for The Writer’s Studio and thought, “This is home. This is where I want to be, and this is who I am.” With support from her family, De Boer enrolled in The Writer’s Studio in 2011. “It was amazing,” she says. “It was the best educational experience of my life.”

Among many other things, the program taught her who she was: “I thought I had to be officially published to say, ‘I am a writer,’ but really, just the simple act of writing makes me a writer,” she says. After 15 years of writing for PR and marketing, she truly was a writer—and still is. Today, De Boer blogs, is working on a novel, and operates a freelance writing business. She also mentors others like her in the Southbank Writer’s Program, teaching them that they, too, should say, “I am a writer.”
