Bridget has been writing for the Ubyssey since 2016, and dethroned the last Cult Leader - er, Culture Editor - for the 2018/19 season. At UBC, she studies linguistics and creative writing and has the pleasure of working with Indigenous communities on language revitalization projects. She is interested in accessible art, underground events, amplifying marginalized voices, and Indigenous culture. You can catch her riding her scooter across campus, or find her on Twitter.
