I am a proud Canadian of Chinese descent with a passion for progress and people. I love to work with and learn about different people, cultures, languages, ideas and ways of living. I am grateful that my university studies in both Sociology and Human Resource Management have allowed me to build upon these interests and passions. I believe that stories and shared experiences provide perspective, build connections and foster community.
I love how the Odyssey Showcase team manages to authentically represent stories, to integrate beautiful music and to celebrate diverse cultures. I want to be a part of this advisory board because I want to share the voices and stories of my diverse community in a way that is both inclusive and meaningful. I would also love to share my truths and lessons learned from my experiences with marginalization, inclusion, privilege and finding community. I am currently based in Montreal, after living and learning in Paris, France.
Odyssey Showcase acknowledges that the land on which we gather in Ottawa is the traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabe people who have lived on this land since time immemorial.
Odyssey Showcase gratefully acknowledges the support of our funding partners.
