Hello! I’m Rashmi, and in the upcoming 2015/16 school year, I’ll be a third year in the GRSJ program at UBC. I am also currently studying with a focus on Japanese language and culture.
I’m a people-loving, poi-playing, dancer whose goal is to create spaces where individuals of all backgrounds and identities feel welcomed. I’m a true believer in optimism and I think that we, as beings on this earth, have the power to influence one another in phenomenally positive ways.
