Emily Fister is a second year student at the UBC Graduate School of Journalism specializing in human rights and cultural issues. Her passion for social justice reporting started in the summer of 2012 with an academic internship at the Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ), a media monitoring NGO that focuses on press freedom. While at CIJ, Emily had the opportunity to develop an anti-censorship campaign called “Stop 114A” on various social media platforms. Recently, she completed her internships at CBC Radio’s Day 6 program in Toronto and The Tyee in Vancouver. Emily holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies from Western University and is endlessly curious about new media and global communications.
