Artist Statement
As I am Chinese Canadian originally from Hong Kong, I felt an immediate connection to this important Mount Royal University alumnus, Roderick Mah. Mr. Mah added to the diversity of this institution and his fond memory of Mount Royal University has led to his most generous gift. As diversity issues are close to my own heart, I felt that I was the best person to convey this message of inclusiveness and equality.

Artist Bio:
Liza Choi, Associate Professor, School of Nursing, Faculty of Health and Community Studies,
Mount Royal University

My roots are in Hong Kong but I am a proud Canadian. I would have never thought that from my humble beginnings in my family's shop and as a part-time tutor would have led me to this fulfilling vocation as a professor of nursing. From my first days in Canada, I became a strong advocate for diversity and equitable access to education for all students. These passions are the cornerstone of my own research.
