Candidate for Office of School Trustee (Team Surrey Schools)



My name is Roxanne Charles; I am a mother, grandmother, community leader, artist, educator,
consultant and advocate for Indigenous Rights. I have lived in Surrey for 40 years and reside in

Many of those years were spent investing in my own education here in Surrey. I received two
undergraduate degrees from Kwantlen Polytechnic University and hold a Masters in Fine Arts
from Simon Fraser University.

I am confident in the experience and unique perspective that I carry forward and believe it
could be of great benefit to the community as a whole. I truly believe education is crucial to the
future we are creating.

As a former Councillor of Semiahmoo First Nation I am honoured to be running with Team
Surrey Schools in this election. If elected we look forward to this opportunity to listen and uplift
the needs of the community by supporting students, parents, faculty and staff.
