Yasmeen Ghebari received a BA with a double major in Psychology and Sociology/Social Anthropology from Dalhousie University. She completed her Honours in Sociology (written about helicopter parents). Her focuses are on developmental psychology, animal behaviour, and a number of topics in Sociology (race/ethnicity, gender, and social justice to name a few). She also completed a Bachelor of Education degree, and is pursuing teaching elementary school. In her teaching, she hopes to instil in children an appreciation for nature, and to encourage them to just be kids (it's okay to go outside and get dirty!) in this ever expanding world of risk-management and screen time. Her hobbies include travelling, volunteering with animals, arts and crafts, and being in nature.
