Therese Tisseverasinghe, Chair of University and College Sponsorship Committee, Shanti Bhavan Canada

I am a liaison librarian at Seneca College. I first learned about Shanti Bhavan through the Netflix documentary Daughters of Destiny. Having grown up in South Asia, the work of Dr. George and his team inspired me to become involved in supporting the continued success of Shanti Bhavan alumni. In my current position, I directly work with Shanti Bhavan alumni who are interested in pursuing post-secondary education in Canada. What I find the most rewarding is providing guidance and support to Shanti Bhavan alumni in their educational and professional endeavours. I truly enjoy the one-on-one connections made and hope that I am able to support young people to achieve self-fulfillment, career success, and happiness in life.
