Jasmine Ama : “In this video, I share with you an entire working day as a Social Worker. From waking up in the morning to breakfast to working out till I go to bed at night. As a student Social Worker, it was hard to know what a working day will be like given none of that aspect was shown to me in university. I got a bit of a glimpse through placement but that was not enough. It’s helpful to know some of what to expect once you start practicing in my opinion and hence I thought I will share with you what a typical day is like for me as a social worker. I hope you find it helpful.”
