Meet the interview team!
Anika – Interviewer Hi! My name is Anika Darts. I am 18 years old and a recent graduate of Pitt Meadows Secondary. During the fall I will be attending SFU for a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. In my spare time I like to paint, play soccer, and hang out with my pet rabbit. However, one of my biggest passions is creating short films with friends and families. I have been making these films for the last ten years where I have taught myself the ins and outs of home movies. I feel very privileged to work on this project and I am super excited to get to know everyone involved.
Tristan – Interviewer Hello, I’m Tristan Allan and I am 16 years old. I currently live with my parents, sister and dog in Maple Ridge. I am going into grade 11 at MRSS in the French Immersion Program. I’m an avid sketcher, reader and music lover. I enjoy taekwondo, dance and playing the piano. I look forward to meeting and interviewing many of you.
Hudson – Interviewer Hi! My name is Hudson Campbell and I am 18 years old. I graduated from Thomas Haney Secondary School in 2019 and currently I am going to Douglas College. My goal is to attend SFU to get a bachelor’s degree with a major in Political Sciences and Marketing. Ever since I was five years old, I have trained in Taekwondo. I recently got my 3rd-degree black belt and have spent many years teaching people of all ages this sport. I also enjoy cooking; I have worked in many restaurants throughout my life and have always enjoyed the culinary arts. When I was fourteen, I was able to compete on the TV show Chopped Canada teen Tournament. Although I finished in second place, it was an amazing experience!

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Geography from Simon Fraser University, and a certificate in Mandarin Proficiency from the National University of Singapore.
