I'm currently working on a Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies & Political Science at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) in Prince George, BC. Areas of interest include the intersection between gender, poverty, food security, and climate change. I'm passionate about a few things: intersectional feminism, climate justice, environmentalism, Indigenous issues & rights, youth empowerment, public policy... I'm also passionate about fun stuff: good food (sometimes I'm pescetarian and other times I'm vegan), checking out live music and theatre, movies, radio and podcasts, rock climbing, hiking, catching sunrises and sunsets when I can.
