I am 19 years old and am a student at UBC majoring in social work. I work as a Resident Advisor at Totem Park residences at UBC and I have created a program to encourage over 2,000 1st year students and staff living in Totem Park to join this welfare food challenge with me or, write a letter or sign the petition. I was born in south east Vancouver however since September I have moved on to campus at UBC as a requirement of my job. It has been a fascinating two months living on campus as I have been overwhelmed and surrounded by so much privilege. This position as a residence advisor has opened my eyes to see the growing disparity between the rich and poor and I want to take action by taking this challenge.
