Hi there! My name is Lauren (she/her) and I’m a grade 12 student. I am super passionate about music and history, and I’m usually either listening to the clash, anything riot grrrl, or the talking heads! I spend most of my time practicing my instruments, composing music, rewatching the outsiders and rocky horror, and reading about history. I am also incredibly passionate about intersectional feminism and being an advocate for social justice. I always aim to educate myself and others about important issues, and I am very excited to be able to do that alongside the JFS team!
Jordan Le Roux
Hello! My name is Jordan and I’m a student in the GTA. I’m planning on a career in law or archival work in the future, and I joined JFS as a journalist because of my passion for writing and making discussions around social issues more accessible and youth-centred. In my free time you can catch me listening to music (specifically Taylor Swift, Joji and a whole lotta 90’s rap), journaling, shopping or petting one of my three pet cats!
Hello! My name is Meg: I’m 16 and from the UK. Currently, I’m studying history, politics and sociology. As a writer I think starting open conversations is key to enabling social change.
My name is Ahmad Liaqat and I’m very excited to be joining the JFS team as a Journalist. I’m the son of Afghan refugees who always looked at the world with an open mind and an open heart, and I hope to emulate that attitude in my work. I would like to think I’m versed in a good amount of social, political, and economic theory but there is still a vast amount of knowledge that I strive to discover, and that I hope we can learn together! Beyond that, my passions are gardening, plant-keeping, and cats (cat supremacy forever!). Az didan-e shoma khoshbakht-am! It was lovely meeting you!
My name is Anna! I use she/her pronouns, I’m Cambodian-American, and I’m going into senior year. I love baking, reading, and playing the kalimba! My favorite recipes are the browned butter cookies from Bon Appetit and the cinnamon swirl bread from Allrecipes. I love Mitski (especially Be the Cowboy), boba, and everything about Sanrio. I’m super excited to be working with the Justice For Society team, and I hope you enjoy our content!
Video Creator, Journalist
Hi! My name is Jaysheen and I’m a grade 11 student attending Okanagan Mission Secondary school in Kelowna, BC, Canada. I have always had a passion for the sciences, specifically human anatomy and physiology, and am working towards specializing in the field of medicine. While pursuing these passions however, I discovered that I also really love to be creative in the form of digital media, writing, and theatre! All of these activities have helped me to establish my voice as a driven, passionate person that believes that change is possible when an effort is made. That is why I’m so excited to be a member of the JFS team and be able to acquire new skills surrounded by equally as passionate, hard working people
Outreach Coordinator, Journalist
Hi, my name is Minh (she/her), I’m currently in grade 11 in Walnut Grove Secondary in Langley, BC. You can find me baking or doing math in my free time. Throughout my years of learning English as my second language—which wasn’t enjoyable, I have grown to be fond of writing and to embrace the language as it is, hence my role as a journalist for JFS magazine. As a youth, I learned the importance of being educated about social issues that are affecting the lives of many people. Therefore, I’m particularly excited to be a part of this amazing team full of like-minded people.
