Emilio was born and raised in McBride, British Columbia but has spent the last five years in Prince George attending the University of Northern British Columbia. He will soon graduate in May 2019 with a BA Honours in History with the hopes of moving onto graduate studies in the coming years. His interest in accessible education and continued learning has inspired him to seek a position on the Library Board, where he sees value in libraries as public and cultural spaces. His travels often bring him to libraries of many sorts which he hopes will inspire the development of Prince George’s library. He has spent these past few years finding ways to serve his community in many volunteer organizations and is excited to continue this work with his recent appointment to the Board.
