Pascale is a second year student at the University of Victoria majoring in Sociology and minoring in Art History and Visual Studies. Born and raised in Vancouver, you will most likely find her swimming in her beloved ocean, reading in a bookstore or in gales of laughter with her friends. A music aficionado, she loves to sing and play guitar and has been known to throw a mean left hook when needed. In a world that seems particularly riddled with negativity and discord, Pascale is excited to introduce students to Generocksity, showing that philanthropic acts are within everyone's reach and that making a significant difference in our communities benefits all.
Margie Grace: Co-President

All her life she has always had a passion for being involved in the community and fundraising. It is a lifelong goal and passion of Margie’s to be involved in initiatives, such as Generocksity, that change the world for the better.
Laura Kittar: VP of External Affairs
Born and raised in the suburb of Vancouver known as Coquitlam (Not PoCo), Laura decided to flee to the ocean and let her inner island girl free. Currently a second year student studying English, Laura hopes that the pen is in fact mightier than the sword for life after University. She hopes to one day be a successful millionaire writer with many fans who shower her with affection, and like to send her gift baskets that she can then donate to charities. In her spare time if she is not shouting at her friends in Mystic, on Facebook tagging her friends in memes, or just downright laughing obnoxiously, she likes to give back to her community. Generocksity provides the perfect platform for the social connection Laura desperately needs, while also giving back to her wonderful community and changing the way people look at philanthropy. She loves being the mother bear of the Victoria Generocksity team and will fiercely defend them whether or not they like pineapple on their pizza.
Safiya Hopfe: VP of Production
Safiya is Vancouver-grown and ecstatic to be studying in the University of Victoria's writing program. She purchases more journals than she can fill, loves to deck herself out in glitter, and can often be found cheering on young independent artists of all kinds from the sidelines. This has led her to immerse herself in local music, and spend the last couple of years writing for such publications as Beatroute. To unite philanthropy with creative, inclusive events seems a brilliant idea to her, and she's eager to collaborate with the team initiating UVic's involvement in Generocksity.
Georgia Tooke: Street Team Captain and Co-VP of Video Production

Georgia is thrilled to have joined the Generocksity team and is ecstatic to share the love and connection that this organization has to offer!
Taynne Wallace: VP Promotion & VP Social Media
Due to Taynne’s excessive amount of teen angst, she is currently a Philosophy major and Film Studies minor at the University of Victoria. She is known for her many skills, particularly her ability to make a large pepperoni pizza in under two minutes, which she owes the two years she worked at everyone’s favourite pizza place. The time she spent as member of the proletariat has inspired her to leave her basement bedroom and give back to the community via the amazing Generocksity.

She has moved to the Island to finally embrace her “inner hippie” and is stoked to be studying Holistic Nutrition.

She is so flattered by the invitation to be Volunteer Coordinator and can’t wait for all the rad adventures that Generocksity will bring!

Graham Connell: Co-VP of Video Production
Graham is a second year student at the University of Victoria who wasn’t sure if he would ever want a job, so naturally he’s majoring in Visual Arts. When woken from hibernation, he spends his time drawing and feeding on bananas. He migrated from the far away land of Ottawa, Ontario for university though he initially hatched in Oxford, England. Graham was drawn to volunteering with the local community centre in Ottawa which is where he discovered his fondness of helping others.
