This year Beat the Streets Toronto received the Canada Summer Jobs Grant for 6 staff.
We are pleased to introduce the first two of our six summer staff: Simi Jayeoba and Dejah Slater
Back in 2016 I met these two amazing young women, they were both very green to the sport of wrestling, brimming with enthusiasm and full of potential. Little did I know that they would embark on such awesome high school careers. Dejah would become a multiple time national champion and multiple-time OFSSA champion while Simi would excel in her academics averaging mid-to-high 90s throughout academic career and achieving academic scholarship standards and gaining acceptance to the McMaster University Science Department.
These two ladies are great role models to our current Beat the Streets Toronto student-athletes. They embody the ideals that we share with our student athletes. Ideals like working hard, having a strong mindset, perseverance and dedication to your sport and education, a deep focus in working through your tasks and achieving your goals.
It is our pleasure to have them return and work with us this summer through the Canada summer jobs grant program. we are very excited about the work they're going to be doing and how it's going to impact Beat the Streets Toronto in a positive way moving forward. We are very confident that they will put all that they've learned over the years into their efforts this summer and we're excited to see the results.
Welcome back Dejah and Simi!
