Shaina Somers (BA, Canadian Studies)

After many years as a UBC undergraduate, Shaina will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Canadian Studies and a double minor in Sociology and Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies. Her studies and interests have taken her around Canada, Europe, Asia and East Africa to work, travel, study and live. As a woman of mixed European and Asian heritage, Shaina became more interested in how her own migration story fit into larger narratives of histories of migration to Canada. (Hopeful) plans after graduation include more travelling, continued involvement with ACAM and learning how to swim!
