Peggy’s interests in youth engagement, community development and social activism led to her involvement in non-profit organizations such as the YWCA, Equal Voice and Check Your Head in recent years. She has mobilized youth movements locally and nationally to increase civic engagement and youth participation, facilitated projects abroad which aim to eliminate cultural barriers and stereotypes, and worked with young people to advocate for gender equality and young women’s leadership.
Peggy is eager to see more representation and inclusion of young women and migrant youth in community spaces. She is currently a Youth Settlement Worker with the Richmond School District, supporting newcomer youth to become involved in school and civic life.
She holds a BBA in Marketing and Communications from Simon Fraser University, is a past RADIUS SFU Fellow, and is curious about using art, design and storytelling for social change.
