“FROM A VERY LITTLE AGE, I SUPPORTED PEOPLE WHO FELT THEY WERE INVISIBLE.”
Yemilka joined the KBI team in January 2023 as a Social Worker. She supports migrants in the shelter and externally. Helping people inspires her the most since it was her primary reason for becoming a social worker. She supported the most vulnerable and marginalized communities from a very young age. KBI first piqued her interest when she volunteered here. Yemilka says that she would like everyone to have the opportunity, even if they are not volunteers, to get to know organizations like Kino so that they can also support people in need.
