Student Research Assistant

Ava is a graduating 5th year student at UBC with a Major in Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice (GRSJ) and a Minor in Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies (ACAM). As a mixed race Cantonese-Chinese woman, she is particularly interested on the intersection between race and gender within the media and the world at large. She is passionate about the community heritage, history, and preservation of Vancouver’s Chinatown and as such it is one of her favourite places to be! Additionally, Ava is a cat lady who loves makeup, art, and is a huge nerd for video games, comics, and all things Star Wars and Marvel.
