About Me

Hello and welcome to my ePortfolio!

My name is Christa Yeung (she/her) and I’m a graduate student in the Master of Science in Planning program at the University of Toronto. While I am currently learning and living on the territorites of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples in Tkaronto, I grew up on the traditional, unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations in the city of Vancouver for most of my life.

This has inspired me to think of things from where the best icecream in town is to how urban environments affect bird mortality and how my class learnings can be incorporated into making sense of the city I experience daily.

This e-portfolio has been an important place for reflection on my journey through human geography and urban planning thought. Some interests I’ve documented here include green building policy, storytelling and visual communication,  and GIS and cartography.

I have also been a strong advocate for student e-portfolios and hope to provide my e-portfolio as a learning resource for students. I’m happy to discuss e-portfolio ideas and strategies with any interested students!

 

 

When I’m not in school or work, I also create embroidery art and run a small business called Tenderpup 🙂
