PERSONALITY OF THE WEEK

Meet Lieutenant Dorin Adenekan who is a community-oriented social worker originally from Nigeria. During her early years in Canada, her passion for humanitarian services and participation in mental health support services drew her focus to earn her second degree in Bachelor of Social Work at the University of Manitoba and a Master’s degree in Social Work (MSW) at the University of Waterloo, Ontario Canada. Dorin was among the 15 social entrepreneurs selected by the British Council and United Nations Association in Canada for the first Youth Innovation Summit, held at the Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Ontario. According to Dorin, “As a mother and a visible minority in Canada, my participation in the

Active Citizens Social Enterprise (ACSE) at the Parliament Hill in 2017, opened up my perspective of what it truly means to be an active citizen and a need for serving Canada on a macro level”. Dorin has worked with new refugees and immigrants in Winnipeg. She also served as a member of research committee and mental health working groups during her engagement in community settlement work. Currently, Dorin is serving as a member of the Canadian Armed Forces as a Social Work Officer. For several years, Dorin has been an active volunteer with the Nigerian Association of Manitoba in Winnipeg where she supports with social media and publicity activities. Personally, Dorin enjoys spending time with her family, and does photography, video editing and dance therapy. Dorin has a personality of a cheerleader and she is known for motivating others through her positive lens of life irrespective of the existence of challenges.
