Capilano Students' Union
Grace is a 4th year political science student with a strong interest and background in public policy, government relations, advocacy, and community activism. She has been involved in advocacy in some form or another for most of her life, and is eager to put her experience to work for students. She believes equitable access to education is critical to a more equitable society, and is dedicated to doing everything she can to create a post-secondary system in Canada which is supportive of and accessible to everyone.
As the Director of Advocacy, Grace looks forward to continuing this pursuit with CASA. She recognizes that this is a challenging time for post-secondary students, and is committed to working hard with her teams on the CASA Board and the National Advocacy Committee to ensure the needs of students are addressed. She hopes to have strong collaboration with the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee and the National Indigenous Advisory Committee to ensure that CASA advocacy is intersectional and fully reflective of the diversity of lived experiences within post-secondary communities in Canada.
Outside of student advocacy, Grace enjoys exploring North Vancouver’s forests on long walks with her dog, watching historical dramas with her cat, annoying her friends by accidentally bringing all conversations back to politics, finding new craft ciders to try, and adding to her already too-large collection of dresses with pockets!
