Undergraduate Fellow

Being an Anthropology student has allowed me to explore many interests. I am specifically interested in Environmental Anthropology and a diversity of subjects within this field; some of which include food studies, agriculture, resource management, climate change, capitalism and existing power dynamics within these subjects that lead to social or ecological inequity or injustice. I am currently working on a food security and education initiative in colaboration with Batiment 7 in Pointe-Saint-Charles and actively engaged in writing an honours thesis on ways in which children perceive the climate crisis and how ecological literacy can be used as a means of knowledge production and expression.



Major: Joint Specialization in Anthropology and Sociology

Minor: Diversity and the Contemporary World

My studies have been focused on the topic of international development as well as sustainable and ethical social, economic, and political systems. Alongside my studies I have been involved in several on and off campus organizations that focus on community-based initiatives; including food justice, refugee integration, literacy programs, and community economic development. The most recent project I have been working on is a student-led initiative called Co-Lab, started by me and two other students. Co-Lab’s central objective is to reduce dependency on fast fashion and the circumvent the ethical and environmental consequences of the fashion industry; by providing the community with the tools, resources, and skills to upcycle ‘old’ and second-hand clothing.  Moving forward I plan to continue to invest my academic and practical knowledge in initiatives that promote social and economic justice in both the local and global community.
