• I got involved with the Build the SFU Gondola group after experiencing severe delays on numerous occasions during my weekly commute to SFU. I truly believe that a gondola will have a tangible and long-lasting impact on the lives of students, and I’m excited to see how it changes Burnaby campus.

  • I’ve always asked a lot of questions growing up. I was curious about the world and I wanted to know more. In grade 9, I started interviewing people in the Downtown Eastside, which made me realize the depth and complexity of poverty. Through this experience, I developed a passion for sustainable communities and community engagement.

  • Wanting to see more black women get involved in SFU politics is what inspired me to host a community event titled "Where are black women in SFU politics?" which birthed the group: Young Black Women Leaders. I decided that instead of talking about how I didn't see representation, why don't I become the representation?

  • Even though I'm not sure where I want to work, or what I want to do, I do know what I'm passionate about. I'm passionate about sustainability, climate action, housing and health. I'm passionate about social equity, systems and addressing societal barriers. Want to make change but not sure what you're passionate about or where to start? That's okay. Step out of your comfort zone and you might just be pleasantly surprised.

  • In Canada, nearly 90 per cent of plastics end up in landfills, incinerators, lakes, parks and oceans. A world without single-use plastic is possible. I am the founder of TumblerShare, a social venture that helps the SFU community reduce disposable cups through a sharing-economy based program.
