“I want to live in a world where everyone can see themselves achieving their own dreams irrespective of imagined or real boundaries and borders.” – Bobby

BobbyThomasCameronGrowing up in Hampton, and being a part of a family active in the local community, illustrated the importance of community for Bobby. This ultimately fuelled him to participate in community building and promote social justice, both locally and internationally.

It was Bobby’s international experience that would influence his future life choices even more so. After participating in a Canadian Exchange with the Mediterranean: Migration Experiences and their impact on Nationalism, Trans-Nationalism, and Identity in Malta, followed by an internship with Students for Development and Farmers Helping Farmers in Meru, Kenya, Bobby came back with questions.

“When I returned to Canada, without a doubt I had begun to question my own identity. What did it mean to be Canadian?… How responsible am I to alleviate inequality and improve social justice? And most importantly, how do I go about doing so?”

Without stopping, Bobby continued to strive to shape both his local community and help make the world a better place elsewhere. In 2008, Bobby was a delegate at the Global Youth Assembly in Edmonton. While going to University of PEI, Bobby was a tutor and member of the PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada; leading a literacy group, and also a member with WUSC’s Student Refugee Program.

With a successful honour’s thesis on refugee policy on PEI and research conducted on refugee reception in Malta and the European Union, Bobby’s education compliments his experience and vice versa. Having worked as a Teaching Assistant for Stephen Lewis, Bobby had the opportunity to lead Mr. Lewis’s undergraduate tutorials on the Millennium Development Goals, where he gained a wealth of knowledge about the direction we should move. From education to volunteer experience Bobby has transformed his life into a journey of positive change.
