Growing up in a small town outside of Kitchener-Waterloo Jenny has always had an interest in politics and social justice. Combined with her Catholic upbringing and strong respect and belief in the Catholic Social Teachings, she has often looked for areas in which her faith could come together with her belief in more progressive politics.
These interests led her to King’s University College at the University of Western Ontario where she recently completed a double major in Political Science and Social Justice and Peace Studies. Through her program, Jenny traveled to places like Ukraine and Guatemala, where her commitment to social justice issues was reinforced, and her belief that community is central to overcoming them was reaffirmed.
Jenny has learned a great deal about people with disabilities, encouraged by her experience in Ukraine and volunteer opportunities in London (ON). This interest and the help of some excellent professors led her to a job with L’Arche Canada writing content for a website for youth with intellectual disabilities on forming lasting social connections. While Jenny will always have a passion for disability issues, she is also looking forward to a chance to widen her knowledge of social issues, particularly in the Canadian sphere.
Jenny enjoys rollerblading, reading excessively, and spending time with her friends and family.
