Hi, my name is Rachel. I finished my BA in Geography at the University of British Columbia in 2020 and am now in the midst of completing my MA in International Studies at Simon Fraser University. My thesis focuses on ocean plastics from fishing gear in Taiwan, so I’m anticipating the re-opening of borders and travel! I sew in my free time and find the sustainable fashion industry fascinating. My personal challenge this year is to practice slow fashion by sewing all my new pieces!
