St Antony's Liaison Officer for Canada (Toronto)
MPhil Comparative Government, 2006
Over two memorable years from 2006-2008, I completed an M.Phil in Comparative Governments while a student at St Antony's. I moved to Saskatchewan shortly after matriculating to work for Radio-Canada. As a journalist working in the prairies, I had the opportunity to cover many stories related to First Nations' communities, the mining and energy sectors, agriculture as well as a provincial and federal elections. In 2012-13, I took a sabbatical for a fellowship which took me to Nairobi, where I worked for the Daily Nation. Lucky me, there were elections on when I was there as well! First in the United States, which gave me an excuse to travel to Obama's father's village and meet his Grandma. Then the Kenyan elections: a fascinating experience in a country filled with people who love their politics! In early 2014, I moved back to Toronto, continuing my work as a journalist with Radio-Canada. A few months after I arrived, provincial elections....Good thing I can't get enough of that democratic activity!
