Meet Bidushy

Posted by mbcstaff

Hello! My name is Bidushy and I’m one of the Collaborative Decision-Making Child Welfare Navigators at Mediate BC.

With deep gratitude, I spend most of my time on the traditional and unceded territories of the S’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō), Semiahmoo, Á,LEṈENEȻ ȽTE (W̱SÁNEĆ), Kwantlen, sc̓əwaθenaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsawwassen), and sq̓əc̓iy̓aɁɬ təməxʷ (Katzie) Nations.

The way I navigate this world has been largely influenced by my family surviving the 1971 genocide in Bangladesh. It led me to the understanding of colonization, also referred to as capitalism, as a deeply pervasive threat to our ecosystem and as a result, I work to empower those targeted. In 2018, I graduated from the University of Victoria with a B.A. in Gender Studies and a Minor in Applied Ethics. Since then, I’ve collaborated with a diverse range of communities such as people with developmental disabilities, street-based populations, and at-risk youth throughout the mainland. These communities have taught me many things and particularly highlighted how conflict of any kind can be exacerbated if we aren’t connected to the necessary resources.

As a Navigator, I hope to bridge this gap for families who may or currently are going through the child welfare system in B.C.
