Bronwyn Beairsto

BA (Anthropology), Memorial University

Bronwyn was born and raised in the Yukon. The social and cultural dynamics of the territory inspired her to pursue Anthropology at Memorial University in Newfoundland, and subsequently Journalism at Carleton. Bronwyn loves the north and hopes to put her Anthropology and Journalism experience toward improving community wellbeing for northerners. Areas of academic interest include Indigenous politics, media representations of Indigneous peoples, and northern issues of food security, economic development and health care. When not at school or travelling, Bronwyn enjoys hiking, reading, writing, and spending time in Whitehorse.
