About Gul-e Rana
Hi there! I am a registered Social Worker/Psychotherapist in Ontario. As a child of South Asian and Muslim immigrant parents, I spent most of my life moving from place to place in hopes of finding a “better future”. Throughout my journey, I have been exposed to various cultures, which brought upon a great deal of confusion and curiosity in me about my own identity, belonging and values as I navigated my life as a 1.5 generation immigrant in Canada.
Growing up as a child of immigrants meant that my parents had an expectation of me becoming a Doctor. For most of my life, I had internalized this narrative of equating my success with being a Doctor.
