Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services

Nominator Comments:

Yousra is an ideal example of creativity and innovation in the non-profit sector. She quietly contributes creative ideas to boost morale and makes the Nutrition Team a visible, tangible aspect of the agencies community’s services. She also builds innovative partnerships to sustain the work at Access Alliance Yousra’s contagious enthusiasm for everything creative is contagious. She is a dreamer that puts her creative ideas into action. Most recently, she spearheaded a Nutrition and Puppetry project, as a creative means to engage children and youth in conversations about Nutrition and Health. She consulted with other doing related work, supported the design and creation of characters and stories with community members and built in a mentorship component whereby older youth would support younger children to become nutrition ambassadors to their peers and directors of their own stories.
