Vivian is a third year student studying in the Arts & Science Program at McMaster University. After eye-opening service learning trips to the Dominican Republic and Peru, she is currently doing research with an NGO, the 53rd Week, to determine whether voluntourism is a best-practice concept. Since learning is her first love, she is as passionate about global politics as she is about biology, and is excited to further her understanding of how the world works. For now, she believes it is the product of complex interplay between politics, science and history- her favorite fields of study!
