I’m currently studying my masters of development and gender, I'm also just about to start my thesis looking at family violence interventions in Victoria! When I’m not in the library you can find me out hiking, testing out my trivia knowledge or eating and drinking myself around this city.
What do you love about GPAN?
I love that GPAN is a group by young people for young people which focuses on the importance of change at a personal and community level. For me, GPAN is all about community, whether creating a community of individuals passionate about gender equality, drawing strength and resilience from your community or engaging with the wider community. GPAN meetings always leave me feeling inspired by what the other GPAN-ers are doing and rethinking.
A bit about you
The token Brit of the group, I moved over to Australia to do my Masters and reconnect with my family. Since then, I’ve picked up a bit more slang, reaffirmed my love for hot chips and explored Victoria. As an intersectional feminist, I am passionate about gender equality and overcoming systemic barriers which prevent women and other marginalised groups from reaching their full potential whilst maintaining (white) patriarchal privilege.
Where do you see yourself in five years?Hopefully I will be working in the gender and development space in a (paid!) research or community engagement role, maybe considering a PhD and still being as passionate (& positive!) about social issues!
