Biography

Born and raised in Ottawa, Sarah Pledge Dickson’s passion for writing started from a young age. After participating in a writing competition in middle school, she realized that pursuing a career in writing could be possible. Graduating in 2020 with a Bachelor of Global and International Studies focused in Migration and Diaspora from Carleton University, she found away to combine her passions for human rights issues and writing through pursuing a Master in Journalism. How and where we get information has become increasingly important. It is her belief that journalism has a responsibility to amplify voices that go largely unheard.

Apart from writing, Sarah is passionate about sports, playing for the Carleton women’s Ultimate Frisbee team, and travelling, having worked and lived in Vietnam and visited almost all Canadian provinces by train. She also draws much of her inspiration from her summers tree planting in Northern Ontario and Manitoba.

She is thrilled to continue her learning through journalism and excited to see how the dissemination of information can play a role in social change, nationally and internationally.
