Regina Valverde

Regina was born in Peru, and she came to Canada in 2002 with her parents. She is attending Burnaby Mountain Secondary School. Regina is devoted to helping out in her community and participating in as many volunteer opportunities as she can. Volleyball is her favourite sport, although she also enjoys sitting at home cuddling and watching Netflix or reading novels by Jules Verne. She joined Fresh Voices after the YAG 2015 summit, to be able to have her voice heard, and to be able to make a difference in the world. She also has a passion for learning about different cultures which is what drew her into the Fresh Voices team. Psychology is her field of interest, since she wishes to be able to help others who suffer from mental illnesses. She plans to attend SFU after she graduates in order to achieve her goals.
