Jane has been dedicated to community and public service since youth. She is currently the Vice President of Students & Community Development at Vancouver Community College. In this role she works to advance access, inclusion, representation and opportunity for all students, especially those most marginalized and facing multiple barriers. Previously the youngest woman in BC’s 40th Parliament and first Canadian of Korean descent in Canada to be elected as a Member of Legislative Assembly, Jane worked tirelessly for many issues but most notably in support of racialized and equity seeking groups. She is natural at bringing together communities to engage in meaningful dialogues and initiatives that impact and transform the society.
