Hey there! Hope everyone is safe. We all know how the recent pandemic has affected everyone psychologically. After communicating with a lot of affected students and families, we found that a significant number of people have stopped watching the grim news updates, with hope becoming an increasingly rare virtue. We a team of first year students from the University of British Columbia have decided to build HOPE to bring more positivity into our lives. We believe that showcasing the progress made by humanity while also providing an outlet for individual contribution could really make a significant positive impact in these trying times.
