Ebba Hassel moved from Sweden to Vancouver in 2012 to pursue a degree in Geography at Simon Fraser University and explore the world-famous ski hills of British Columbia. Through working as a facilitator at Pearson Seminar on Youth Leadership and participating in ‘Semester in Dialogue’ with CityStudio, she has developed a passion for community building and social change-making.
Ebba is driven by opportunities that encourage exploring her curiosity for experimental ways of creating real change in Vancouver. If she had a magic wand, every neighbourhood in Vancouver would have a well-used sharing network where people would feel comfortable asking their neighbour (who they knew by name) to borrow their ladder or teach them how to repair their bike.
When Ebba is not studying or working on projects with CityStudio, she is actively volunteering with Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland and growing vegetables in her garden.
