Kwan Fung- 

My journey in mining started because of curiosity, but is now shaped by passion and purpose. Prior to university, I had almost zero knowledge of mining and only visited a mine once. Over the next six years, I completed over two years of internships at Shell and Suncor, competed nationally at the Canadian Mining Games competition, and internationally at the Move Mining competition. Throughout my academic and work experiences, friends and relatives always asked me what mining is and what is it that I do; I began to realize that many people were like me (before entering UBC) and had little to no idea of what mining is, or its relevant to modern-day society. In the last year of my studies, I created this short video to inform first-years what mining engineering is about and to encourage them to pursue this exciting field. I also entered a contest called Move Mining — which aims to change the public perception of mining — with two fellow mining engineers. We submitted our concept Mine2Me, which employs a series of animated infographic videos to educate the public on the usage of mined commodities, safety and technological advancements in the industry, as well the environmental conservation efforts made. After securing first place, the contest winnings and another sponsorship, my team and I continue to work towards changing the public perception of the mining industry which is often misunderstood and characterized by misinformation.
