About:

Born in France, and partly growing up in Canada, I was raised bilingual. I later picked up Spanish as I continued to live abroad and traveled. Visiting over 45 countries has taught me a great deal about diverse ways of living, problem-solving and to take chances. I finished high school in Dubai and now reside in Canada where I completed my bachelor's of industrial design at Emily Carr University, Vancouver. I am passionate about helping others, and I believe that we can do so through design.

Why I started this project Seeing massive amounts of food waste growing up left its mark and pushed me to choose this topic as my grad project. The problem space - How are we planning to feed 9 billion people by 2050? Especially considering that almost 45% of food produced today goes uneaten. Because of this, I believe that the answer is not to produce more food, but rather efficiently use the food that we already grow. Through my experimentation, I realized that despite the awareness movements and more, adults are often set in their ways. As such, this brings the project to a unique approach to educate kids on the matter. The result is an educational game that gives real-life scenarios. I hope to give a positive learning environment for kids, not only on food waste but also on learning from others and long-term thinking as this goes hand-in-hand. Visually seeing where costs and food waste occurs will already give a better understanding of what it takes for a food product to make it to their table. Perhaps this will bring more care towards the food that we have and not toss what is still good. In the end, I wish to give a better understanding of the closed curtained food industry and to let them make their own decisions on what they think is right. As they grow older they will have the power of the public that can influence even government decisions on the matter.
