“Having grown up in South Africa
during the apartheid era, I’m
passionate about facilitating
transformative conversations to
enhance intercultural understanding
and the development of leadership &
critical thinking skills among youth
from diverse backgrounds.”

“I am a Half Okanagan Indigenous,
Half Caucasian man from the Syilx
(Okanagan) Territory in Penticton, BC.
My passion comes from my story as a
youth myself. I am now dedicating my
life to support youth to give my life
meaning and bring much joy


“As a young Filipino immigrant, I
struggled to find a strong sense of
community and cultural identity.
While completing my degree in
Criminology, I became very interested
in working with youth.”
