Paige Fisher

Paige is studying Political Science at York University. Her academic focus has been on sustainable, long-term development, with an emphasis on equity for historically marginalized communities – women, racialized peoples, people with disabilities, the LGBTQ+ community and all others dealing with societal barriers. She aims to develop a career that will allow her to utilize policy and other aspects of the political process to fight for the rights of the most vulnerable among us.

She believes in the importance of knowledge-sharing, community building and accessibility. As a demonstration of this, Paige performs art-education workshops at local elementary schools using poetry and theatre to teach children history lessons pertaining to the African diaspora.
