Meet our board of directors.
the big picture team.
Hello everyone! I’m currently in grade 12 at A.B. Lucas Secondary School, and some of my passions include science, languages, dance, music, and performing arts, as well as social justice. I love my role at COC because it allows me to take leadership for causes I believe in, build new connections, and collaborate with a brilliant team. It has been over two years since I joined CoC in 2020, and it amazes me how much we’ve grown and accomplished in that time. We have some big plans for this year and I can’t wait to put them into action!
