My name is Taylor Tang, and I’m grateful and excited to be a part of the new cohort of Corbett Exchanges. I am a fourth-year undergraduate student in the University of British Columbia Sciences Po Dual Degree. I earned my first BA in France at Sciences Po, where I majored in political humanities with a minor in international relations. At UBC, I currently study international relations with a minor in gender, race, sexuality, and social justice. I’m interested in policy from a progressive and people-focused perspective and have a particular interest in environmental philosophy and historiography.
I am born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, and spent two years in France, which gave me a deep appreciation for the value of cross-cultural and integrated learning experiences. Having studied North America primarily from a European context, I believe that I have a lot to learn from peers from the U.S., and a lot to contribute from a unique perspective. I look forward to sharing my province with other Corbett Scholars and rediscovering new excitements about the Pacific Northwest.
The Corbett British Columbia-Washington International Exchange Program Fund provides an opportunity for undergraduate students at the University of Washington to spend two semesters at the University of British Columbia or University of Victoria; and for students from the University of British Columbia and University of Victoria to spend three quarters at the University of Washington.
