Levi Bergen – December 2015 KPIRGer of the Month
Levi: I grew up in the Lower Mainland and currently live in Vancouver. I’m happy to be in the Sociology program at Kwantlen. I like dancing, particularly salsa and tango. I’m really interested in learning more about what perpetuates inequality and the historical context for it.Question: How did you hear about KPIRG?
Levi: I heard about KPIRG during Welcome Week in the fall 2014 semester and I wanted to become involved while I studied at KPU. I knew I wanted to become involved while I was studying at Kwantlen.
Question: How has KPIRG helped you?
Levi:: KPIRG has been a good place to connect with people with similar values and concern for social justice and also a place to make friends and hang out. I appreciate the opportunities and events that KPIRG supports on campus because they often coincide with the things that I am concerned about. The Dis/Orientaton seminars at the beginning of the semester covered very important issues such as: mining justice, prisoner’s rights, and what the name ‘Kwantlen’ means on Kwantlen territory. I’m really glad they are on campus.
