Hi! I’m Jacqueline. I am the executive founder of the largest regional youth conference in Northwestern Ontario, WE Stand Up. I was a member of the Ministry of Education’s Student Advisory Council, and a key player in developing the new sexual health curriculum for all of Ontario in 2014.

As an executive leader for the Northwestern Ontario Secondary School Student’s Association, I have extensive leadership experience leading workshops and facilitating events. I spoke to an audience of 18,000 at WE Day in 2015. I sat on the Regional Youth Council for the Hon. Patty Hajdu, and am currently the President of the Lakehead University Political Science Association.

I am an activist for women’s rights, and equal opportunities and education for girls, and am entering my third year in a double major in Political Science and Women’s Studies at Lakehead University. My passion for girls empowerment drives me everyday to make this world a better place.
