Features Editor & alternative Moira

Moira started writing for The Ubyssey after a friend convinced her that it wasn’t a cult (it is). Since September 2016, she has written feature-length pieces on healthcare policy, contraception, faculty diversity, the Vancouver housing crisis and the practice of politics at UBC; covered tumultuous AMS VP External and student Senate elections, and broken news on everything from university governance to UBC's reconciliation strategy. When she’s not camped 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.
