Rosalyn Martin: Simcoe-Grey

Rosalyn is a passionate student leader who loves to be involved in every community that she is a part of, make new friends and explore new places. ‘Ros’ will graduate from Queen’s University in April 2021 with a degree in Political Science and Gender Studies, as well as a Queen’s University Certificate in Law. She hopes to attend law school in September 2021 and eventually practise gender centered law, providing an outlet for underprivileged and marginalized female identifying persons to obtain justice and representation on a provincial, national and international scale. Rosalyn has a love for social justice and human rights, spending much of her time learning about oppressions an privileges within Canadian society and how these are reflected in Canadian National and Foreign Policy. She is particularly passionate in her advocacy for sexual violence awareness and prevention, mental health and maternal resources for remote communities, accessible post-secondary education for women and girls, gender diversity within the public and private sectors, as well as representation and government action regarding the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women crisis. When she is not busy studying or participating in extracurriculars, Ros can be found riding her horses, hiking, spending time with her brothers and far-away sisters, travelling and laughing at a good joke! Rosalyn would like to thank the strong community of female leaders in her life who have inspired her to become a passionate advocate herself!
