Kirsten Chan, Capilano University, winner of the spring 2020 BC Study Abroad Scholarship
Study Abroad Destination: Scotland
Kirsten is currently a third-year student at Capilano University (North Vancouver, BC) pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Tourism Management. The outcome of this program will allow her to pursue a career in the Ecotourism industry where she can help encourage travels to BC while educating and practising sustainable efforts. Kirsten grew up in her current hometown of north Delta and many of her skills and qualification have been inherited from this energizing city. Kirsten can be described as humorous, outgoing and kind. However, as she stepped into the real world full of responsibilities and reached self-actualization, characteristics have changed over the years. When she is not in school, Kirsten can be seen exploring the outdoors and hiking along the beautiful trails of British Columbia.
