A little bit about this first time blogger.

Hi, my name is Marijke and I am an aspiring journalist, feminist and lover of the arts.

I am a fourth year journalism and women and gender studies student at Carleton University. As a reporter, I specialize in social affairs and have experience on the (dis)abilitie’s issues beat. I see writing as a way to not only express who I am, and what I have to offer, but a way to interpret and process the complex world we live in.

In my spare time, I am a specialty tea fanatic and enjoy outdoor concerts, hiking and board games. Also, my name, Marijke, means “lover of the ocean,” which is suiting as I grew up playing on and exploring the magnificent beach’s in Qualicum and Parksville.

I like to surround myself with quotes to live by posted in my day timer or on my computer. One of my favorite quotes is, “you were born an original, don’t die a copy.”

I created this blog as a requirement for my fourth year Social Media and Gender class. I hope that it grows into something that will last long after the course ends.

Feel free to contact me with comments, questions, and/or any other feedback. This website is a constant work in progress, so let me know what you think.

I hope you read and enjoy!
