Jacqueline Mah

Jacqueline Mah is from Vancouver, British Columbia. She graduated in May 2019 from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Asian Studies.

During her degree, Jacqueline developed a passion for understanding the social, political, and economic forces that drive today’s global issues. She participated in UBC’s Political Science Global Seminar in Chongqing, China, which focused on the policymaking practices of the rapidly growing city. Later, she would intern with Cuso International for a research project aimed at increasing the accessibility of health services and improving the economic independence of young women in Nigeria. Additionally, she has worked with a local non-profit organization, Force of Nature Alliance, learning the tools that encourage municipal political action towards climate solutions. These experiences led her to continue her studies at Balsillie where she hopes to combine her passion for both global governance and climate change.
