Although Roy Liu (Events Coordinator and Program Assistant) describes himself as “once shy and kind of geeky,” he feels blessed to be able to relate to people and adapt to different circumstances—abilities he has relied on to make friends over the years.
“I’m a lone wolf,” he chuckles, before breaking into a boisterous rendition of Eric Carmen’s “All By Myself.” Liu explains that he had been sent to a boarding school in England when he was young. After a few years there he was reunited with his family, and at age 14 they moved to Killarney in southeast Vancouver where he began high school.
Despite moving around a lot as a child and being separated from his family, the 31-year-old Liu says that one of the ways he was able to adapt to his new community and form new friendships was to engage in team sports.
