Hi! I’m Megan. Thank you for visiting my blog-space.
I am 1st year BEAD student, with a BASc in Biological Science & Psychology with a “special interest” (because I couldn’t officially minor) in gender and sexuality from the University of Lethbridge. I was born and raised in Southern Alberta, but have since moved to Regina to further my career. I have a lovely dog named Chili, who I adopted April 2017. She is 7 years old and is my best pal. I like to read sci-fi fantasy books, learn about science, and have recently started watching Pokemon on Netflix. I haven’t seen anything after the Indigo League- so it’s been fun!
Bork! Bork bork bork. Bork snuff bork bork. Bork. Snuff snuff BORK.
(Hi I am Chili, pictured above. I am 7 and am Megan’s trusty sidekick. I like snacks, walks, and butt scratches. My mom adopted me last April after I spent a long time in foster care, so it is my duty to protect my new house from the evil cars and those stanger doggos that DARE walk past my house. So be warned, I have a loud BORK (but no bite). Nice to meet you too!)
I am currently the Program Coordinator for the EYES program at the University of Regina. I started my position two and a half years ago, and realized that we have not had a trained educator act as Program Coordinator in more than 10 years. As a program who aims to educate youth in engineering and science, I decided to come back to school and learn how to teach! So here I am back in school.
I am passionate about providing equitable access to programming for youth across Saskatchewan. I believe that all youth, regardless of their background, deserve very opportunity at success and love.
I am a vocal feminist, and believe in equality for all. I work to disrupt normative narratives, and challenge my own views as well as those of my peers. I believe that if you’re not a little uncomfortable, you are complacent. Change starts with challenging friends, family, and colleagues. It means having difficult conversations, and not allowing racism, misogyny, ableism, and other form of discrimination in your spaces.
I look forward to continuing to grow, and sharing my experience with you here.
Thanks for reading!
