Danica Rint

External Outreach Coordinator

As a second-generation immigrant, Danica (she/her) has always felt a disconnect between her heritage culture and the culture she grew up in; it was constantly an “either/or” situation when it came to displaying her Filipino or Canadian identity. It wasn’t until well into her time as a psychology student at UBC that she was able to use the resources she was exposed to in order to realize how multi-faceted her identity really is.

Danica joined Sliced Mango Collective because growing up in Vancouver made her realize the gaps in resources the Filipino-Canadian community here has, and she hopes to use her past experience with other non-profits to help find solutions to fill those gaps and strengthen our community’s ties.
