Mariel is delighted to be this year’s policy intern and is looking forward to working with the staff at CPJ on issues of public justice.
Mariel grew up in Ottawa and attended the University of Guelph, where she recently graduated with a B.A. (Honours) in International Development. During that time, she spent a semester abroad at the University of Havana, where she studied Cuban social development and urban agriculture. Her research interests during her degree included electoral participation and public health policy in the Americas.
Mariel’s passion for social justice issues was sparked when she travelled to Jamaica on a poverty-awareness trip during high school. Inspired by what she experienced there, she has since worked with a number of volunteer organizations on social justice issues, both in Canada and overseas.
She is excited to be a part of the CPJ team and is looking forward to meeting members of the CPJ community in the coming year.
In her spare time, Mariel enjoys running, reading and going for coffee with friends. She attends First United Church.
