Meet Abiodun. She is the Community Liaison for the Family Resource Network Hub at CIWA.
Abiodun moved to Calgary from Nigeria in 2017. She was an early childhood educator and a high school teacher for over 7 years. She received the Inspirational Educator Award for her dedication in working with vulnerable youth.
Abiodun enrolled in CIWA’s Civic Engagement Program with the help of settlement and employment counsellors. She fell in love with CIWA’s work and immediately knew that she wanted to work in the organization. In July 2018, she started working at CIWA as a childcare worker and then became an Instructor for Links to Success. She also took on a Coordinator role for the Innovative Early Learning Project before moving into her current role as Community Liaison.
Outside of work, Abiodun enjoys travelling and spending time with friends and family. She loves spending time with her 3-year-old son, who keeps her very active and busy.
