For Hallie Bryant Rounthwaite, any day spent learning new things or sharing knowledge with others is a day well spent. A fourth-year student of Anthropology and Human Dimensions of Climate Change at the University of Victoria, she is particularly interested in the intersections between culture and climate change. After graduation, Hallie plans to continue her education with a graduate degree in Ethnoecology. Her passion for food security and teaching has been recognized at events like the Capital Regional District’s “Good Food Summit,” where she presented on the revitalization of Indigenous food systems. She has also worked as a youth worker for the Beecher Bay First Nation and as a youth development assistant for the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture. When Hallie is not studying or working, she is encouraging others to get politically involved, as the vice-president of the University of Victoria Young Liberals, and as the women’s commission representative for her local riding.
