Vanakkam, nanri நன்றி, my name is Letitia Annamalai. I was born and raised in Durban, South Africa with ancestry from Tamil Nadu (Southern India). My family immigrated to Canada when I was 16 and I have been a visitor here on Esquimalt and Songhees territories since 2003. I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science with a Minor in Gender Studies from the University of Victoria. I am a youth support worker and facilitator with 10 years experience working with newcomer Immigrant and Refugee youth and Women coordinating arts-based, and life skills programs. I am able to converse and translate in French and Spanish. I am a self-taught home-cook and have been running my own catering and cooking class business called Tishanna's where I work to provide healthy, nutritious food options for community events. I am beginning my training as a Doula this year with hopes to support clients holistically with all aspects of their well-being: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual care and guidance. I also hope to provide nutritional support through meal planning and meal preparation based on individual needs.
