Student spotlight

Desmand King is a proud Anishinaabe who is eager to share and talk about his Indigenous heritage with those around him. His enthusiasm and warm personality quickly earned him the role as one of three BCIT Indigenous Student Champions. As an Indigenous Student Champion, Desmand is a guide and a knowledgeable resource that assists Indigenous peers in developing strategies to succeed in their post-secondary education.

“Indigenous Student Champions also connect with Indigenous students to inspire and encourage the sharing of stories – here is my pathway, here’s what I’ve been through, and here’s some pitfalls to watch out for,” explains Zaa Joseph, Advisor, Indigenous Initiatives and Partnerships.
