Chair of Organization- Lydia Adams
Lydia is entering her 2nd year at UNBC as an English major. She chose English because of a deep seated love of the written word; a form of expression that finds a lucky few. Besides, who doesn't love a good story? She joined the sorority because her roommate at the time, insisted she join with her. She knew she would need a community here at UNBC and clubs are a fantastic way to build one. She moved to PG from Fort Fraser so the area wasn't completely new to her but the people certainly were. She was raised on a farm, with very little access to TV or gaming systems, os she developed a love of adventure through books and the outdoors!
Chair Person- Viveka Jensa
Viveka is currently doing a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Anthropology with a focus on the Forensic side! She decided last minute that she wanted to do anthropology because she was inspired by the TV show Bones. This captured her interest and after she looks at some university descriptions of the degree she decided that it was her calling. Mainly because she thinks skeletons are cool, graveyards are rad and travelling is her favourite thing ever. She joined Alpha Pi Beta because she wanted to expand her social connections and make a ton of new friends. Volunteering is also one of her interests and APiB is big on that aspect. She grew up in Calgary and moved to Osoyoos in grade 5. She is now planning on moving to Prince George until her education is completed. Something Viveka wants people to know about her is that she is extremely loud, random and quirky!
