Repost from @sfu_history:
Congratulations Lydia Tang - First place winner of The 78th Fraser Highlanders Assoc. of Vancouver prize for Scottish-Canadian history! Lydia is a student in her final year of study at #SFU, with a #SFUhistory major, and a minor in Political Science,
She is currently on a co-op work term with the federal government in Ottawa, but will be returning to BC soon -- like John Booth, Lydia has stated that she is convinced there really is "no better place in which to live" - a quote which inspired the title of her blog post on John Booth and the pacific dogwood: "No Better Place in Which to Live": John Booth 窶 Landscape Gardener, Poet, Immigrant.

Congratulations Lydia! #sfugram #scottishhistory #scotsinbc #sfucoop 汨条沍シ沚

This experience has opened Diana窶冱 eyes to the many areas in which business, technology, and design are integrated while using her creativity on a daily basis. .
