Aida Mwanzia – Youth Peer Leader

Aida is driven by her mission to connect and empower youth through transformative educational programs, which is why she’s so excited to be part of the Check Your Head team as a Youth Peer Leader! With roots in Kenya, her curiosity and love for travel led her to arrive on Coast Salish territories in Vancouver, Canada nearly 7 years ago, and she has been working in youth development and intercultural community building ever since. Aida graduated from UBC with an Honors degree in Sociology, and is currently working as a coordinator for the Youth Exchanges Canada and Youth Peace Network programs at the YMCA
