KIN Senior Orientation Leader: Jason Lin

Jason Lin is a second-year student in the multidisciplinary science stream. When he graduates, Jason plans on continuing his education and eventually pursuing a career in physiotherapy.

Jason will be a KIN Orientation Leader this September 2021. He says, “Being a KIN Orientation Leader is an exciting opportunity for me to welcome incoming kinesiology students to the beautiful UBC campus and introduce them to the warm and welcoming KIN community here at UBC.”

Jason reflects on his decision to join UBC KIN, “it is a well-rounded program that touches on a wide range of kinesiology-related subjects which will set you up for your future. I was drawn to the KIN program at UBC because it provides endless opportunities to grow not only as a student, but also a person.” Jason says that his favourite classes have been Human Anatomy (KIN 110) and Systems Physiology (KIN 131, KIN 132). Outside of academia, Jason plays junior level hockey for the Richmond Sockeyes. He says, “I am a coach for UBC’s hockey and skate programs, and I recently started a community project that is funded by the Kinesiology Undergraduate Society (KUS) and the School of Kinesiology called Sport4U, which seeks to give everyone in the community a chance to participate in sport by providing affordable sporting equipment.”

Jason is also a volunteer at two physiotherapy clinics, East Vancouver Sports Rehabilitation Clinic (EVSRC) and Kids Physio Group, where he shadows physiotherapists and provides assistance during their treatment sessions. “At EVSRC, I help out in kinesiology and strength and conditioning sessions in the Essentials of Athletics gym, where I also observe, make suggestions, and coach exercises.”
