Weiwei was born in Beijing, China and moved to Vermont at age five. Since then, she has lived across the US and China. Currently, she is a research specialist at the Center for Rural Studies at UVM where she researches food access, consumer and producer behavior, community development and more! Since moving back to VT in 2014, Weiwei has been impressed with the various community organizations focusing on racial justice and POC community building, but there is clearly more work to be done. She is excited to be part of the PJC board to forward its trifold mission, and hopes to bring greater focus on the issues related to race in all PJC projects.
Weiwei holds a BA in International Relations and East Asian Studies from Connecticut College, and is completing her MS in Community Development and Applied Economics at UVM.
