Meet Tasnuva

Posted by mbcstaff

Hello! My name is Tasnuva 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 xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

The way I navigate this world has been largely influenced by my family surviving the events of 1971 in Bangladesh. This influence has led me to recognize colonization, also referred to as capitalism, as a pervasive threat to our ecosystem and as a result, I work to empower those especially targeted. After graduating from the University of Victoria, 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 but particularly highlight the importance of feeling supported when conflict arises. As a Navigator, I hope to assist families in overcoming this hurdle in their journey through the child welfare system in British Columbia.
