BOARD OF DIRECTORS 2018 – 2019
I migrated to Canada August 23rd 1969 and lived in Toronto for nine years. I then moved to Richmond May 8th 1978 and have been living in this same area since that time.
My fist job in Canada, I worked at the Toronto Credit Bureau for four years and then started with the Royal Bank of Canada Sept 18th 1974 until 2007. Although I am retired, I still work part-time for the bank.
My main focus is in helping women of different cultures and seniors. I have volunteered for the Richmond Gateway Theatre for 15 years 1991 – 2006, the Vancouver Olympics in 2010 and the RBC Canadian Golf PGA 2011. I am presently and active member and President of the Trinidad Chinese Club.
I am an avid reader and gardener and enjoy helping others especially seniors.
Winnie began volunteering for RWRC as a board mentee from the Leadership Richmond’s “Youth Now Program” in 2016, and is currently the secretary of the board and the centre’s social media manager. She is also a student at UBC studying psychology, an avid volunteer in the community, and recipient of a 2012 U-ROC Award for Outstanding Youth. She is interested in learning about intersectional feminism and enjoys hiking.
