Joshua is a Vancouver local and a recent graduate from UBC’s Okanagan campus with a B.A. in Philosophy, Politics & Economics, with an emphasis in Economics. As well as taking several courses related to public policy such as International Trade and Global Political Economy, Joshua also had hands-on experience volunteering with political parties such as the BC Liberal Party. He is also passionate about mental health awareness and conducted his B.A. final research project on the role of supervised drug consumption sites in Canadian politics and society. The international opportunities Joshua experienced during his education (such as a six-week long Economics seminar in China, and a three-month exchange in Belgium) led him to become interested in global governance and democratic institutions. He hopes to use the skills he gains in the MPPGA program to improve global institutions and the way they serve the interests of people democratically.
