My favourite kind of writing is pop culture criticism. Lately, I’ve been covering teen and youth media like American Vandal, Sierra Burgess is a Loser, and Veronica Mars. A selected list of my published writing and interviews can be found via the “writing” page. Psst: I currently work freelance and would love to write for you. Get in touch!
I started my own online zine in 2015 which you can read about here. From 2015-2016, I was an editorial assistant for Sophomore Mag. I was also the Opinions editor for the 2016-17 volume of The Strand.
I worked as the Communications Assistant and Blog Editor at New College, University of Toronto, and the Communications Intern for the Multi-faith Centre, also at U of T. In both roles, I managed social media, websites, newsletters, blogs, and other outreach to the university community. I also worked as the Marketing Intern at Eaton Electrical in Burlington, Canada, where I created a variety of multi-media marketing tools to help encourage the sale of Eaton residential products with distributors.
In 2019, I worked as the Orientation and Transition Intern in the Office of the Dean of Students, Victoria College. In this role, I hired and trained 40 students for the Transition Mentorship program, and coordinated all aspects of the program including events, communication, and administrative work.
From 2017-18 I was the Equity Commissioner on the Victoria University Students’ Administrative Council (VUSAC), the student council for Victoria College at the University of Toronto. As the VUSAC Equity Commissioner, I facilitated equity and social justice-related programming at Victoria College. One of my biggest projects was co-founding and organizing an art show for women and trans people of colour with my friend Georgia Lin. Read a report of my progress in the first academic semester here.
I also coordinate leadership and equity training for small or large groups. In 2017, I created and facilitated a two-hour workshop that introduced basic social justice and equity principles to student leaders at the University of Toronto. The workshop saw seventy participants over several sessions and was received positively.
I was the the Peer Leadership Programmer in the U of T Student Life Office from September 2018 to May 2019; in this role, I facilitated programming, planned a conference called LeadHERship, and wrote and reviewed leadership curriculum.
Currently, I’m obtaining my Master of Professional Communication from Ryerson University. My research is in the production and interactions of bodies and identities in how we communicate and tell stories, with an emphasis on youth media and race, gender, and disability studies. I graduated from the University of Toronto in June 2019 where I received my Honours Bachelor of Arts in Equity Studies.
