Alisha Buttar

BSc, ’22

I’m a Dietetics Student at the University of British Columbia which is on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. I balance a Research Assistant position and a handful of extracurriculars activities.

I am a Punjabi, South Asian womxn who grew up in a town with virtually no people of colour. I grew resilient and comfortable being the only person of colour in a room. However, as an adult, I am doing a lot of unlearning and relearning on what a strong diverse team, profession and community should look like.

I am thrilled to witness, uplift and advocate alongside my peers for a more diverse profession. #diversitymatters.
