Winnie Kwan (BS, Global Resource Systems)

Winnie is a second-generation Chinese Canadian tracing ancestry back to 開平 and 九佛 graduating from the Land and Food Systems faculty with a Bachelors of Science in Global Resource Systems, and a Minor in Arts in Asian Canadian and Asian Migration studies. Through her major and minor, Winnie’s studies have explored the intersections between sustainable food and culture, including the closely intertwined history of Chinese Canadians with the local food system here on traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tseil-Waututh), and sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) peoples. Winnie is passionate about experiential learning and storytelling, especially as a medium for education, and hopes to combine these passions in pursuing a career in education with the recognition that education happens in many capacities beyond just the school classroom.
