Sevdije (Sevda) Fazliu

Sevdije (Sevda) Fazliu graduated from the Faculty of Law at the University of Prishtina in 1990. She can fluently communicate in English, Albanian, and Serbo-Croatian. In Canada, Sevda completed various Law program courses at Fleming College between 2003-2004. She graduated from the Social Service Worker Program at Fleming College and received her diploma in 2010. Subsequently, she opened her business, “Immigrant Advisory Services”. She holds a certificate from Language Link Ontario as an Albanian-English interpreter. In order to enhance her communication skills, she obtained a “Peterborough Toast Masters Speech Craft” certification, which allowed her to articulate her diaspora experience to students and faculty in the Peterborough region.

Sevda has an abundance of experience working with newcomers to Canada. Upon the arrival of the refugees from Kosovo, Sevda worked extensively with the New Canadians Centre to ensure they were properly integrated into the community. She sat on the Board of Directors at the New Canadians Centre between 2001-2004, was a member of their Newcomers Advisory Group, and was a project coordinator during the assembling of their booklet, “Making Good Choices”. For many years she served as a member of the Canadian Association for Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition. Sevda’s work in the community also involved being a court support worker at the Elizabeth Fry Society. Sevda is the face of Carmela Valles Immigration Consulting in Peterborough.  Her welcoming presence, her passion and her expertise are exceptional contributors to the team.

Sevda loves to cook and her favorite food is Burek.  Sevda is also a proud mother of three daughters.
