My family came to Canada almost 20 years ago as refugees from South Sudan. Today I’m a full-time student at the University of Victoria. I’m entering my final year of a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Public Administration. Through a combination of lived experiences and my educational journey I’ve realized that there exists an urgent systems problem. I hope to be a part of the group of young people who disrupt and change those systems. You can follow me on Instagram @arieyeh.
