Janie Vu Bio
My name is Janie Vu and I am a fourth year student in the Honours Psychology program at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton. I am extremely passionate about research, and hope to eventually have opportunity to instruct at the university level after obtaining a PhD in Psychology.
When I am not focusing on my studies, I am usually finding ways to express myself creatively or dedicating my time to promoting the arts and crafts movement in New Brunswick. I am the Vice President of the UNB student art collective, ArtZone, and also the New Brunswick regional leader for Etsy Canada.
I have taught creative and entrepreneurial workshops in the past for ArtZone and the New Brunswick Crafts Council, and organized the first Etsy: Made in Canada Fredericton event which took place on September 26, 2015. I also have my own online jewelry shop on Etsy called High on Hemp which has been in business since 2011. I hope that my creative enthusiasm and organizational skills will allow me to shine in my role as a Student Ambassador for the Pond-Deshpande Centre.
