Edwin is a fourth year student at the University of Toronto studying Political Science and Ethics, Society, and Law. In 2011, he was part of the Assets Coming Together (ACT) Youth-Led Committee that aided in the development of community-based research projects. Currently he is a Legislative Usher at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario and Residence Don at the University of Toronto’s Woodsworth Residence. Edwin spent his summer working on an initiative that encourages social innovation through a case competition model. It would provide youth with a platform to develop social solutions to urban issues facing the GTHA.


Edwin plans to pursue his M.P.P. in order to learn more on how effective policy can tackle income inequality in Canada. He hopes that this will one day help make the lives of families in low-income areas a little bit easier.
