Hi everyone! My name is Sumara and I am so happy to be the new Food Systems Change coordinator for Embark.
Talking and learning about food system challenges and innovations is something I love to do and I am looking forward to working with the wonderful team of Embark Food Systems Change volunteers.
As a 4 th year student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Faculty of Health Sciences, I am interested in the social, environmental, and economic determinants of health and how we can create a sustainable society where all the complex local and global systems work together to promote health and well-being. One of the things that I love most about Embark is the constant effort that is made to seek out new perspectives and new knowledge that can be shared with students and translated into local action.
In my free time you can find me running on the Burnaby Mountain Park trails, hiking, or curled up with a cup of tea and a good book.
