I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Arts, having completed a major in Geography and minor in Asian Canadian and Asian Migration studies. I am fascinated by cities, and take interest in the people, communities, systems and cultures that they are formed by. My academic background, combined with my appreciation for lived experiences, motivates me to pay attention to the intersections between a city’s urban political history and the growth and development of its communities today, particularly along lines of race, gender and class.
I engage with these ideas through my participation in community based models of learning and research, as well as through the use of digital media. These interests have led me to work on various projects, such as the Chinatown Sound Map and Vancouver Chinatown Food Security Report, which can be found on this website.
I also find a lot of joy in filmmaking and am passionate about amplifying personal and community voices through storytelling. My time in university has allowed me to gain valuable experience in video production and community storytelling, all of which I hope to dive deeper into in the coming years. Beyond that, I love biking around the city and playing ultimate frisbee, and can often be found admiring East Van gardens and nurturing my green thumb.
