Why did you apply for the Master of Land and Water Systems?

I applied to this program because I believe in participating in the movement to mollify the injurious effects of climate change on human and environmental ecosystems. This programs provides the educational legitimacy to advantage my goal of working as an environmental professional. What particularly concerns me is how climate change will exacerbate regional wars over resources.

What are you most excited about learning in the MLWS program?

I am most excited to learn about water security and governance.

What are some of your favourite hobbies?

Playing the guitar has become a passion since I began a few years ago. I also sail in English Bay with the UBC Sailing Club. When that slows down in the winter, I'll be snowboarding at Whistler until the spring when the sailing season starts. Lastly, I've been training in martial arts since I was young. The style I'm working on presently is Taijiquan.
