When asked what brought her to Booth UC, Busi replied, “The simple answer is God.”
In August 2001, Busi arrived at Booth UC only one week after her mother passed away. Once here, she was wrapped in love and compassion by faculty, fellow students and staff who were there to listen and help Busi navigate her grief, as well as the new experience of being a Booth UC student and starting her social work courses.
With a supportive community around her, Busi excelled and graduated with her BSW in 2005. She continued her education at the University of Manitoba, completing her Psychology and Sociology degree in 2009, followed by her Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy (OT) in 2011. This solid educational foundation meant Busi could build a career she loved, and contribute to her community. Busi and her husband Owen (a psychometrician) eventually headed west, settling in Edmonton in 2013.
Today, they have two children, Tessa and Aaron. As an occupational therapist, Busi’s entrepreneurial spirit led her to combine her experience growing up in Zimbabwe, with the Attachment Theory she learned from Professor Bonnie Bryant at Booth UC to develop Babuebaby Carriers.
Looking back Busi said, “Booth University College was the place for me. God knew that Booth UC would be the place where I would experience spiritual growth, academic integrity, and build long-lasting meaningful relationships.”
