Zine coordinator (Editorial)
Kaitlin (she/her) is 22 and living in London, Ontario. She moved from Vancouver to go to Western University where she did her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Women’s Studies and English Language and Literature. In September 2021, she hopes to move to the United Kingdom or Ireland to pursue her Master’s degree in Women’s Studies! Her mom was born in Parañaque City and moved to Vancouver with her family in the 1970’s. Her dad is of Italian and Scottish descent.
Kaitlin wanted to be a part of SMC because her Filipinx heritage has always taken a back seat to her paternal heritage. This was the perfect opportunity for her to learn about her roots through self reflection and community. She wants to be an example for other youth of mixed descent that there is no right or wrong time to get to know your culture, and that there is no shame in it!
