My name is Michelle and I'm a GTA-based writer and budding journalist. I hold a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from Queen's University with a major in English and a History/Jewish Studies minor.
During my studies at Queen's, I served as a Journalist for Inquire Publication, Editor for The Undergraduate Review, Reporter and Sports Coordinator for CFRC 101.9, and Assistant Editor of Photography/Staff Writer for The Queen's Journal.
Last summer I interned at The Beaverton, a satirical Canadian news publication. I did graphics and writing for both the online publication and the TV show.
I also found time during my undergrad to complete a study abroad program in Elizabethan Shakespeare and British Studies at the Bader International Study Centre in Great Britain, host the Queen's Poetry Slam, and contribute to rewriting Queen's Sexual Violence Policy.
Outside of my journalistic endeavours, I'm interested in photography and graphic design and have previously used these skills at companies such as The Beaverton, Queen's Arts and Science Undergraduate Society, and The Queen's Journal.
My influences include Rebecca Solnit, Hannah Arendt, and Katharine Graham. In my spare time, I enjoy skiing, going to independent movie theatres, and the works of David Sedaris.
