Angie identifies as a woman of colour being a second-generation Filipinx woman. Angie holds lived experience of growing up as part of a racialized community where access to mainstream services and opportunities were unavailable to people of colour. While she has witnessed her parents’ experiences with overt and covert forms of racism as a child, her interests in issues related to social equity, inclusion, and anti-racism flourished during her first years of university. Growing up in Winnipeg’s West End in a predominantly Filipinx neighbourhood, she became hyperaware of the racialized aspects of her identity after being one of the only few students of colour in a faculty with only white professors. She draws on her lived experiences as a Filipinx woman in Canada to facilitate research design processes and engagement analysis to support the theoretical articulation of the occurrence of racism in the school system.
