Bonjour/Hi/Hola! My name is Galya (she/her).
I was born in the Dish with One Spoon Territory (Toronto) and moved to Tiotià:ke (Montréal) 4 years ago for University where I achieved a B.A in Political Science and Latin American studies. I have a mixed heritage and am a first-generation child of refugee settlers from Chile. I have a deep commitment to social justice and have been an activist for many years.
I am the Engagement Coordinator at CRE. In this position, I am able to use my political organizing experience in a new way. Electoral politics has taught me how to make quick and effective decisions, and has allowed me to work with members of the public from a variety of different backgrounds. My role connecting youth from across Canada in ways that promote decolonial, collaborative and grassroots perspectives on change is how I demonstrate my solidarity.
