As a recent graduate from UBC in Sociology and Economics, Vivian is interested in alleviating social inequalities through fostering inclusive communities, cultural integration and youth engagement. She currently works as a Constituency Assistant to NDP MP Don Davies for Vancouver Kingsway, while on the Executive of COPE, Vancouver’s progressive municipal party. Vivian is a co-founder of Fresh Media, a non-profit that celebrates independent media innovation, hosting a monthly series titled ‘Remixology’. She is an author of ‘Growing Community Roots’ a blog series featured on BeyondRobson.com which showcases food security programs and community gardens in Vancouver. In the past, Vivian has volunteered for NOW! Organization, Pivot Legal Society, Canadian Mental Health Association and Little Mountain Neighbourhood House. Vivian firmly believes that transition towards a vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable community starts with a sense of belonging. When we feel connected to one another and the natural environment, the more empowered we are to make a difference in our community by taking care of what we belong to.
