Kaitlyn Fung

Kaitlyn Fung was born in Vancouver (Coast Salish Territories), and grew up in the Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood in East Vancouver. Her grandparents immigrated to Canada with her mother from Hong Kong, and they have lived in Canada since. Kaitlyn loves her neighbourhood and believes that it is really important for social justice to develop at the grassroots level, through the creation and nurturing of a community. Through high school, work, volunteering, and university involvements she has dealt with issues around sustainability, food security, and food justice. With her local neighbourhood house, she has helped organize workshops for gardening and jam making, as well as storytelling about work around food. Kaitlyn is in her third year at UBC, studying Sociology with a minor in Gender, Race, Sexuality, and Social Justice.  When she isn't at school or participating in her community, Kaitlyn likes to enjoy stories, the great outdoors, cycling, and anything creative.
