Program & Policy Coordinator
Ben is a recent graduate from the University of Victoria with a B.A. in History and a minor in Pacific and Asian Studies. Ben decided to pursue this degree after taking a year off from university to travel across Asia for several months by himself, eventually deciding to focus on modern history of the Asia-Pacific region. While at UVic, Ben gained a strong interest in international policy, social and economic development, and social history.
Born and raised in Victoria, Ben is deeply grateful for being able to live and work on the lands of the Lekwungen speaking peoples. He is also grateful to be able to work and learn with the Pacific Peoples’ Partnership and its partners.
