Cyrille Larosa

Social Media & Marketing Director

Board Member

Cyrille is looking forward to taking this next step at When I Becomes We to grow as a marketing professional while helping others reach their own goals and ambitions. She is a recent graduate from the University of British Columbia where she finished her bachelor’s degree in Sociology. One of Cyrille’s aspirations in life is to pursue a career in marketing as she finds interest in the creative and critical thinking aspects of the field. In her spare time she enjoys traveling, hiking, yoga, and trying out new coffee shops.

A message from Cyrille:

Volunteering for non-profit organizations has been a huge part of my life over the past five years. When I was in my second year of university I started volunteering as a way to learn more about myself and figure out which career path I wanted to pursue. During my time volunteering I gained new skills and met others who had similar interests as me. Eventually, I found that I gravitated toward social media and marketing. I recommend When I Becomes We to anyone who is trying to navigate their own career and would like to make a positive impact in their communities!

Hope Lompe

Communications Director

Board Member

Hope proudly serves as a Board Member and the Communications Director for When I Becomes We, and brings her experience in leadership, management, and communications to the role. She is deeply passionate about people speaking up and taking action toward solving the environmental, social justice, and inequity issues facing our communities. Now in her third year, she is pursuing a bachelor's degree at Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s School of Journalism with a special focus in policy studies and political science. Hope believes that change begins with the people and ends in actionable policies. She is thrilled to get to work with WIBW to connect as many people as possible with a non-profit organization they are passionate about in a collective effort to affect real-world changes in our communities.

A message from Hope:

Part of the mission for When I Becomes We is to “further strengthen, heal, and address pressing needs within our community.” As Communications Director and a person who studies journalism, there is nothing more important to me than communicating what our city, town, and neighbourhood needs. Communication can start by talking to a friend, which leads to a group of friends, then to an organization, a moment, a movement, and the power to end in government. Every step toward progress started with one person beginning the dialog. We’ve seen laws and lives changed, all because people used their voice and got involved. I cannot wait to see what we will do with the most powerful tool we have: our voice.
