Participant bio – Lihwen Hsu

Name: Lihwen Hsu

Live: UBC, Vancouver

About myself: I am a studying Political Science and Sustainable Community Development. I have grown up in the Point Grey/UBC area since 1995 and have been fortunate to be provided for my entire life. I work in a kitchen at Earls and devote my time to cooking at Dusk to Dawn. I am an avid biker and hiker amongst the other various sports I do.

Why doing the Welfare Food Challenge: I am taking the Challenge to experience and learn what it would be like to live off of $26 dollars. It is upsetting to know that someone I have been in contact with is going to bed hungry. I am hoping to do this challenge to influence my peers and bring this issue to light as it is also the root to health and social problems as well.

My worries: I am worried that I will be eating junk food all the time and I will not be able to have enough energy to get through the day.

I will be blogging at: Summer of Solutions: Seattle
