I am excited to announce that I have been nominated for the 2022 Human Rights Award from the Newfoundland and Labrador Human Rights Commission for my efforts to make a meaningful contribution in advancing and furthering human rights in the province.
I was nominated for my advocacy for student protesting and activism in the area of affordable, accessible education. The letter I received, the Public Relations Specialist of the Human Rights Commission expresses her appreciation for the work I do every day. The message in the letter highlights how it has been shared with them that I have put myself at risk academically, emotionally, and financially to fight for student rights and for the rights of other students at Memorial University.
A final decision on the winner of the 2022 Human Rights Award will be coming soon. I look forward to attending the ceremony at Government House in December.
