Eugene Ma is a first generation Canadian who was raised in the Tri-City area of Vancouver, British Columbia, living on the unceded territories of the Kwikwetlem Peoples, within the shared Territories of the Tsleil-Waututh, Katzie, Musqueam, Qayqayt, Squamish, and Sto’:lo Nations. Initially planning on immigrating to Los Angeles, her family quickly changed their minds as they fell in love with the beautiful outdoor scenery of British Columbia.
Joining Ecotrust Canada as a Summer 2021 Communications Officer, Eugene is currently a student at Simon Fraser University completing her Bachelors degree in Communication and a minor in Interactive Arts and Technology. Throughout her university career, she has held interests in the subjects of political economy, environmental communications, and political marketing.
Outside of work you can find Eugene snowboarding, wakeboarding, and on the occasional camping trip.
