It is my honour and pleasure to recommend Jas. I had the privilege to be Jas' teacher, research partner, colleague, and friend when she was a MA student at Royal Roads University, a researcher at Fraser Health Authority, an associate faculty at Royal Roads University, and a passionate intercultural and diversity communication leader for better understanding and interaction for the people in BC and Canada. Jas is an excellent teacher, researcher, and leader in educational, health care, and other communities. She has contributed more than many other intercutluralists to her community with great passion and vision.
