TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF

Hello, my name is Katelyn Boughton. I am a technology savvy self-starter with a passion for learning and sharing the knowledge that I acquire with others. I am detail-oriented hard worker that is not satisfied with the status quo. I want to help improve the state of the world, to hopefully leave it in a better state than when I was born. 

WHAT CONTRIBUTIONS HAVE YOU MADE TO THE LGBTQ2S+ COMMUNITY?

As a member of my employers Pride committee, I have worked with other members of the committee to put on Informational sessions about various topics related to the LGBTQ2S+ community. I have helped coordinate the company's marches in both the Kamloops and Vancouver Pride Parades and helped unveil a new rainbow crosswalk at the corporate head office.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO JOIN THE BOARD?

I want to help Kamloops Pride to continue to build a safe and welcoming environment for all members of the LGBTQ2S+ community.  I would like to help create even more events for members of the community.
