Emma is new to Ottawa having called Halifax, NS home for most of her life. She graduated from Dalhousie University in 2014 with a degree in Environmental Sustainability and Gender & Women's Studies, and spent the last two years working for The Otesha Project and bike touring around Canada. She’s passionate about environmental and social justice, particularly LGBTQ2S+ rights, climate justice, and Indigenous rights. In Halifax, she started a radical marching band that amplified voices at protests and demos. She believes that all youth, especially those experiencing oppression, need to be heard and taken seriously as collaborators in all levels of government.
