Moira Wyton

Features Editor & alternative Moira

Moira started writing for The Ubyssey after a friend convinced her that it wasn’t a cult (it is). Since beginning in September 2016, she has written about student protests on campus, co-led coverage on student Senate elections, and contributed feature-length pieces on campus contraception, faculty diversity and the practice of politics at UBC. When she’s not camped out at the features desk, Moira studies political science and international relations in the dual degree program between UBC and Sciences Po Paris and sometimes remembers to call her parents. Tweet her here or send her a strongly-worded LinkedIn request here.
