Trixie Ling, Canadian Mental Health Association - Project Manager
Life after King's
While a student in the Politics-History-Economics (PHE) program at King's, I had the incredible opportunity to work in the summer months for the “Make Poverty History” campaign, advocating for more and better aid, trade justice, debt cancellation, and an end to child poverty in Canada.
"Studying at King's was a privilege and a time of exponential growth, it provided me with a great foundation for my future work."
This experience combined with my studies in politics at King's lead to work as a policy intern with Citizens for Public Justice in Ottawa, a national policy organization dedicated to championing policies that reflect God’s call for justice, love, and stewardship.
Since graduating from the PHE program, I have completed a Master's of Public Policy at Simon Fraser University. My thesis was on the social and economic impacts of language barriers for Chinese immigrant women in Metro Vancouver.
I now live in Vancouver and work for the Canadian Mental Health Association, B.C. Division as a Project Manager for “Connecting the Dots,” an initiative promoting the mental health of urban Aboriginal youth and families in British Columbia. I am also privileged to serve as a board member for Here Housing, a non-profit organization which provides supportive and affordable housing for intentional communities in East Vancouver.
