EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH

JANUARY 2021

DAMI IDOWU

Dami has been working with Quest for 2 years! He is currently our Activity Coordinator. Dami was recognized for: “There is never a task he won’t do. He’s exceptionally hard working and reliable. Whatever task you put in front of him, you know it’s going to get done! He’s a team player and so easy to communicate with. Dami has helped every department at Quest with a last minute task and he always gets the job done right!”

 

We interviewed Dami for Employee of the Month. Here is what he had to say:

 

Quest: Tell us something about yourself.

Dami: I moved to Canada in 2012 and have been in Lethbridge since then. 

Quest: What’s one thing that people might not know about you? 

Dami: I run an online magazine ( thatreadtape.com)

Quest: What are some hobbies that you like to do and/or a hobby you’d like to get into? 

Dami: I love listening to music and playing video games. The only hobby I want to add to my current arsenal will be reading books. I enjoyed it the couple of times I have been able to complete the books, but consistency is lacking

Quest: If you could snap your fingers and become an expert at something, what would it be? 

Dami: Liberating countries/people from their oppressive government/

Quest: How long have you worked at Quest and what program do you work at? 

Dami: Been with Quest for the last 2 years I believe.  Presently I am the activity coordinator for AIR programs

Quest: What’s your favorite thing about working at Quest?  

Dami: It is a team-oriented workplace. Communication is consistent and the structure in place for staff and individuals is impeccable

Quest:  What’s your favorite thing about the individuals you work with at Quest? 

Dami: They all come with a wide range of creativity that you can't see from the outside until you get to know them 

Quest:  What’s one of your favorite memories from the past year? 

Dami: When I became the Activity Coordinator, I was faced with many challenges including the ones I set out for myself. One of which was to help integrate our individuals into the Lethbridge community as if they had no disabilities. Help them enjoy some of the goodies of the city without being treated as "individuals" and it was a joyful moment for me when we were able to get a Pool tournament for them at Shotz Billiards and also crowning the first ever winner of the tournament in DBot. It was a fantastic moment as I felt like I was able to accomplish one of the biggest challenges I faced going into the new position.
