Dona Kumarapathirage, Mentorship Officer
I migrated to Canada in 2015 and worked to re-invent myself as a service provider in immigrant services sector. I was once a mentee with CRIEC and student at Bow Valley College and have found success through networking and developing my skills. Now I am passionate about helping other professional newcomers find success with their career goals and aspirations.
I am originally from Sri Lanka. I completed my Bachelor degree in Business from India and my Masters degree is in Management and is from the University of Surrey, UK. Before moving to Canada, I was working as an Assistant Registrar with the Military University in Sri Lanka. I believe that the key to successful employment for newcomers is continuous development, adaptability and building a strong professional network of people who believe in your work skills, professional ethics and your ability to add value to a team.
