Litia is an educator, a lover of birds, and ice cream enthusiast who desires more politically and socially like minded souls in her life. Born and raised in Vancouver, she moved to Calgary a year ago; though she has lived in many cities across Canada, this is her first time living in the Prairies and the geography amazes her on a daily basis. Litia loves to ride her bike and has recently started taking her dog, Maisy, along with her.
Litia completed an undergraduate degree in Sociology and Political Science at St. Thomas University, and a Bachelor’s of Education at UBC. She is interested in identity politics, critical pedagogy, intersectional feminism, and in creating social justice focused curriculum that is accessible to teachers and students of all experience levels. Her idols include bell hooks, Michael Jackson, and her mom – she knows this is an eclectic bunch and draws strength from it.
