Bailey Bjolin

Bailey Bjolin has a passion for the power of stories and understanding the role of narrative and representation. This interest has brought Bailey from Calgary to Vancouver to pursue a Masters in Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice at the University of British Columbia. In her research, Bailey intends to focus on queer and gender non-conforming narratives in young adult literature. Back in Calgary she was involved at the University of Calgary queer campus spaces, a peer support at the Women’s Centre of Calgary, and volunteered on the sexual assault hotline. Through Next Up, Bailey is looking forward to connecting with like-minded folks in her new city and continue learning, bridging her Masters to the opportunities provided through NU.
