Jane completed her BA in Honours Anthropology at the University of Waterloo. She joined the Public Issues Anthropology MA program in September 2019. Prior to becoming an Anthropology Major, Jane was in the Faculty of Science (Biomedical Science and Biology). Her background in science has continued her interest in human health. For Jane’s thesis, her research will be on youth homelessness. She will be examining the public discourses that surround youth, the social structures that continue to influence homelessness, and the transition period after “aging-out” of care.
