My name is Jackie and I am a young Canadian, born and raised, who has had the good fortune of traveling (and living) around the world and experiencing many enlightening cultural exchanges.
Traveling is one of my greatest passions, and this has allowed me to take away and give back so much to the world that I inhabit...
I completed my Bachelor's Degree in London, Canada in media, technology, and cultural studies and have been pursuing my interests in intercultural communications and human rights research. I am particularly focused on women's and children's issues within Canada and globally.
Currently, I am living in London, England, where I am pursuing my Master's Degree in International Communications and Development. My research focuses on women in developing countries who are utilizing Internet technologies and Social Media tools. My objective is to determine whether women who use Social Media are developing their communication and leadership skills and building their global networks as a result, and if these women are the same women who are assuming higher positions of authority and leadership in both their local communities and on an international scale.
Aside from the aforementioned, I enjoy interesting conversations and diverse perspectives, cooking, running, writing, dancing, photography, volunteerism, meeting new people, and...fashion (alas, it continues to play a big part in my life!)
