Shauna McGinn


BA Hon (Global Development), Queen’s University

Shauna was born and raised in Ottawa, and completed her Undergraduate degree at Queen’s, studying everything from International Relations, to gender and sexuality, to political economy. The focus of her degree was learning how to critically engage with dominant forms of representation and narratives about the Global South. Writing has always been her greatest passion, and this flourished when she had the opportunity to be a part of Muse, a student-run magazine on campus. There, she was able to engage with and write for fellow students, covering topics relevant to young people. Shauna is particularly interested in women’s issues, and investigating stories related to racism, sexism and human rights. She is thrilled to be a part of the Carleton Journalism tradition and hopes to use her education as a vehicle for social activism and change.
