Cheng Yee Seah is a third-year student from Malaysia, majoring in Human Geography with a minor in International Relations. Cheng Yee has a strong passion and interest in literacy development and how education, whether in a formal setting or through “alternative” approaches, can empower a community to develop and grow stronger. While spending three months in Uganda, she was able to gain introductory experience to research and learn more about community-based development projects. This experience also gave her the opportunity to think about her two passions, education and human geography, and how these two have a powerful relationship that should be further explored. It is through some of these experiences where she fostered a genuine interest in working with School District 27. She is thrilled to be working with a local community partner and learning more about the challenges and successes being faced in Williams Lake.
