Jennifer Reddy was elected to the Vancouver School Board in October 2018. She was born in the East Kootenays on Ktunaxa territory to immigrant parents who moved to Canada from Fiji. Jennifer watched her parents engaging with democracy in their new homeland: going to voting stations, debating the newest policies – all of the reasons why we value Canada and democratic participation so much. She developed her interest in politics and policy from a young age.
Throughout her education, Jennifer has worked to understand the connections between social conditions and student learning. She holds a Masters in Social Policy and Development from the London School of Economics, a Bachelors in Development Studies from the University of Calgary, and a Certificate in Curriculum Development and Instructional Design from Mount Royal University.
