My name is Conrad Tyrkin. I live in Port Coquitlam, BC.
I have a passion for mentoring and presenting my Employment presentations for people with diversabilities.
Having a steady job is important to me because I gain new experience, skills, connections in community, earn money and a job gives me purpose and structure.
You only have one life to live so why not make the most of it!
