Hello world! My name is Tanner Bokor.
I was born and raised in Monroe, Connecticut, just about an hour and a half outside New York City, before moving to Canada in 2011 to study Political Science at the University of British Columbia (UBC.) While at UBC, I delved into journalism as the head of The Ubyssey newspaper’s investigative news team and as a staff news writer, covering everything from campus development to electoral area elections.
A year later, I became involved with local non-profit groups and was proudly elected as the 105th President of the UBC AMS, the largest student union in Canada. I also sat on the boards of numerous non-profit groups around Metro Vancouver, including as the Vice-President & Digital Communications Manager of the Better Transit & Transportation Coalition and as a Board Member for the Law Students Legal Assistance Program (LSLAP.)
In 2016, I returned to journalism and was elected as the President of The Ubyssey Publications Society before making the leap to Langara College to study journalism, where I wrote for the Langara Voice newspaper and interned with Global B.C.
In my spare time, I like traveling, craft beer, photography, music production and spending time with my friends, family, and my husky, Caba. I also keep up to date on local music and arts and culture, but more often than not you’ll find my nose in a new government report on educational affordability or accessibility.
