Kevin Huang is the Co-founder and Executive Director of the Hua Foundation, a youth-driven non-profit based in Vancouver, working to bring together the worlds of cultural heritage and social change. Recognizing the growing gap in engaging Chinese-Canadian youth on environmental, social, and political issues, Kevin co-founded Hua Foundation with the goal of increasing community participation through youth empowerment opportunities.
As a first-generation Taiwanese-Canadian, he is living the ever-increasingly-prevalent life experience of having grown up very “Canadian” and since adolescence, striving to (re)connect with his cultural identity and heritage. In addition to his work with Hua, Kevin serves as an advisor to Tech Easy Foundation, Meal Exchange, and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Youth Leadership Millennium, and mentors several youths who are starting their own community-based projects. He enjoys spending his time exploring the intersectionalities between food, culture, and identity.
