About the speaker

Blen Kusmu is a proud Eritrean and Canadian. These two identities allowed her to create positive and safe spaces where people can connect and express themselves. Kusmu gives others the opportunity to step outside their comfort zones and discover themselves in a new and uplifting way.

She holds a degree in Sociology and a certificate in Community Service-Learning, which sheds light on the positive impact service-tasks and structured-opportunities have on self discovery within individuals and communities alike.

As Founder of Soul Search Canada, Kusmu creates enabling spaces through various creative events and workshops aimed at inspiring others to gain knowledge of their own abilities, character and feelings. By empowering others in self-expression, Kusmu supports the growth of confidence in others and allows the community to shape a better future for themselves, perhaps even revealing a path in life they never knew existed.
