About me

I am a fourth year ProCom student. I’m an introvert and a gamer. I’m 30 years old, having taken spent several years working fulltime in the restaurant business before coming back to post-secondary education in fall 2017. Now I’m approaching graduation and I’m excited about the opportunities I’ll have as a graduate from this program.

Research

The title of my project is ‘Subjective euphoria and/or dysphoria relating to the Trans Identity Umbrella’. Dysphoria in this context means distress caused by one’s sex characteristics or gender role in society not matching how the person feels about themselves. This can be a huge quality of life issue, and can contribute to mental health challenges. My research project was designed to find out what makes people feel bad and good so that we can share information that best supports the Trans community and build better Trans friendly spaces.
