Millennium BC Executives
Evin is honored to work alongside the Executive Team in empowering students to view the world through both innovative and creative lens. She is currently attending Point Grey Secondary as a senior and has witnessed firsthand the gender disparity that exists in STEM -- having it manifested as numbers in the classroom. Rooting from these combined experiences, Evin hopes to empower high school students to push past the initial reluctancy in exploring the different career streams surrounding STEM, and to spark purposeful conversations that have an impact on the real world, outside the walls of the classroom. When she isn’t organizing events for Student Council or playing ultimate, Evin enjoys learning about sustainability, inspiring social consciousness through Project Zero, and taking naps (that are almost always way too long)!
