Dr. Danielle Duplassie
I’m doing this challenge because I grew up in substantial poverty… and am one of the few people who have managed to get out of the poverty cycle. When I heard how low the rates were for social assistance in this province, my heart sunk. How is a person expected to be a fully functioning individual while living off so little. I’m doing this Challenge to bring awareness about the issue of poverty… and to bring my personal experience to the forefront so that I can help educate people about the complexities of poverty. I have been sharing my experiences on FB and I am also a Core Faculty member at the Adler School of Professional Psychology, where I’ve been sharing my experiences with Graduate Students in Counselling Psychology.
