I'm a journalism intern here at trend hunter and a recent graduate from UBC. Completing a degree in political science has opened up my eyes to the world and has really kept me interested and up to date with current events. I also strongly believe in community and try to give my time to volunteering whenever I can. I am a yoga and running enthusiast and am a bit of a nut for everything and anything elephant. Most of all, I have a passion for the written word and love how people can convey their own uniqueness and viewpoint through the way they express themselves through words.
