Sherien Barsoum

Volunteering to turn my Passion into a Career

Sherien went to journalism school, but while she was there, she spent a lot of time working with an organization that supported youth. Her background in journalism gave her the tools and the talent to tell the stories of the people she really cared about:  the youth she was mentoring. To facilitate the important conversation of race and identity amongst youth mentors, she created the documentary film "Color Me," which has already been screened by more than 10,000 students in the GTA.
