Josephine Mensah is a compassionate and energetic young woman living in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Her family originates from Accra, Ghana, West Africa and immigrated to Canada in the early 1990’s. As a graduate from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, Josephine received a Bachelors of Arts in Sociology and a Liberal Arts Minor in 2011. Her academic work in the social sciences has translated into employment with YWCA Saskatoon where she is currently a Employment Counselor for job search programming and counselling services. In the future, she hopes to attain a management position as a consultant in the non-profit sector which will allow for further professional growth and influence.
In her volunteering life, Josephine is involved with local and provincial non-profit organizations such as the Immigrant Access Fund of Saskatchewan Inc, which awards (non) Black immigrants with micro-loans to fund their career pursuits and integrate into the Canadian labour market as well as identity politics of generational migrations. She strongly believes that impactful change can occur when communities are empowered from a micro to macro-level.
In her spare time, Josephine enjoys picnicking in parks with friends, travelling and has recently created a style blog entitled “Style by Lady J”.
