Benjamin arrived in Vancouver in August 2008. After attending a language school for one month, he joined COPE as an intern. Benjamin’s major is political science at his university in Bamberg, Germany and he’s very pleased to be experiencing Vancouver and politics during this exciting election year. This is Benjamin’s second time in Canada. The first time he visited our fine country, he stayed in Toronto. However, Benjamin admits he prefers living in Vancouver. When Benjamin is not studying English or working the COPE office phone, he can be found exploring a Vancouver park or relaxing on a beach.
