Featured volunteer: Lucy Xie - The KidSafe Writers' Room
Photo by one of the kids in the winter break program.
Lucy Xie has been a dedicated Writers’ Room volunteer since the very first week we opened. She often tutors more than once per week, and she spent every day with us over the winter break! She even completed her women’s studies practicum at the Writers’ Room, during which she took on the role of communications intern, compiled and helped design the latest Writers’ Room chapbook, and set her hilarious sarcasm aside to master the super-perky Writers’ Room e-newsletter tone.

Ana, age 11, is not easily impressed, and even she likes Lucy: “I like her because she’s good at math.”

Shirley, age 8, interviewed Lucy.

Shirley: Do you have a cat?
Lucy: No, but my family used to have one when we were in China. I do have a dog right now, though!

Do you like playing?
I love playing all kinds of games! My favorite game is Scrabble.

Are you scared?
I'm usually not scared, but I am scared of a few things, like spiders (yikes!).

Have you had a sun burn?
Luckily, I don't burn very easily in the sun. But I did get a tan recently from wearing shorts in the sun.

Are you allergic to anything?
I'm happy to say that I don't have any allergies, at least none that I know of.

Do you go to school?
I do go to school. I'm a student at the University of British Columbia. It's a really big school with many, many students.
