Executive Council 2017-2018


Joy Chen


Specialist in Forensic Anthropology; Minor in Biomedical Communications

My name is Joy and I am the President this year. I am a fifth year student specializing in Forensic Anthropology with minors in Biology and Biomedical Communications. I hail from the land of mountains in the west and consequently, love hiking, camping, travelling, and fiddling with my camera. If you have hiking trail recommendations, please let me know. I am always up for an adventure!

Specialist in Anthropology (Science)

Hi I’m Kristen and I have loved Anthropology longer than I knew there was a word for it. In grade 9 I could tell you I had three passions that I couldn’t learn enough about: 1. space and the solar system 2. geography and 3. the history of humans. Once I found ‘Anthropology’ and how it’s basically everything I could have wished for and more, I knew it was for me!
