Board Director

Dr. Shemine Gulamhusein is a Muslim scholar occupying the lands of the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples. Shemine’s clinical practice spans the fields of therapeutic recreation, pediatric palliative care, violence against women and children, international youth camps, outdoor programming for people with disability(s), and child, youth, and family counselling. Shemine has a deep-seated commitment to creative, innovative, and interdisciplinary understandings, the dismantling of, and re-creating accessible, culturally grounded, and transformative research. Her primary research centers on migrant subjectivities, diasporic self-making, and theorizing in-between spaces. Shemine’s work is situated in (auto)ethnography and arts-based health promotion methodologies that acknowledge people’s innate desire to seek a sense of belonging through recreational and leisure pursuits. Her curiosities about the power of recreation offer her research a rhythmic pulse.

Stepping boldly into leading with children and youth to create a better future for us all.
