Are you a Faculty of Health student curious about where your degree can take you? Career Spotlight is an opportunity where you can connect with Faculty of Health alumni and learn about their career. This session’s spotlight speaker is Pegah Rahbar.

Pegah received her BSc Specialized Honors in Kinesiology and Health Science from York University in 2018 with the President’s Honors Award. Her passion for healthcare, clinical diagnosis, and patient care along with her interest in conservative management of pain led her in choosing a career in chiropractic. Currently, she is a doctor of chiropractic student at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) class of 2023. She is excited to share her personal experiences regarding her undergraduate involvement at YorkU, the application process, her current experience as a chiropractic student, and her research involvement. As the chiropractic field is a relatively young profession, she is hoping to answer any questions regarding what chiropractic is and how it has been benefiting patients with musculoskeletal issues.

Presenter’s Bio: Ashim is currently completing his BA in Psychology and English at York University and is looking to pursue a Master’s in counselling. His current research interests revolve around Masculinity and its effects on Emotion Regulation. He has been involved with the Faculty of Health at York University as a Calumet & Stong Colleges Leadership Coach since 2018, delivering leadership skills training to hundreds of students. He is also leading the GEL group within The Centre for Sexual Violence Response, Support & Education, to engage male-identified or non-binary community members to work towards ending gender-based violence and contributing to enhancing and supporting positive masculinity. Ashim is also supporting an Agents of Change project, Humans In Progress, to aid community leaders in recovering and re-assessing their sense of purpose and their personal mission.

Session Summary: It is often the redemption story within us that we seek, and we take for granted the importance of the failures that lead up to it. Often times, we may even fear the failure that precedes the redemption. But without being knocked down over and over, without the countless failures, and without the endless lessons, the redemption story would just be another story. As a first-generation South-Asian student navigating the diaspora of mass immigration, dealing with mental health issues throughout his life, and addressing masculine norms within society, Ashim is no stranger to failure. Join Ashim in his attempt to change the narrative behind the redemption story and unmask failure to uncover its necessity in everyday life.

Experience a moment of learning and sharing ideas.
