Chloe Nielsen

Raised in the picturesque small town of Bowmanville an hour outside of Toronto, Chloe Nielsen became drawn to the urban lifestyle in order to expand her knowledge of diverse cultural issues and viewpoints. Chloe took this desire to broaden personal exposure to the capital city of Ottawa. She now is in her third year at Carleton University, double majoring in Human Rights and Political Science. These programs have offered Chloe the academic support to unpack perspectives of historic struggle, in both a local and global context. She is particularly interested in the concept of Citizen and it's relationship with Colonialism, entrenched in modern political discourse. Through the Next Up program Chloe hopes to further her understanding of different social justice issues and learn how to apply this critical thinking into meaningful action.
