Hello! I am Rosalie (she/they) and I am an Undergraduate Student in my third year of Communication Studies, with a Minor in Diversity and the Contemporary World. I am a white settler living on the unceded lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation in the Tiohtiá:ke (Montreal) region. I moved here to attend Concordia University in 2019 from Sǫ̀mba K’è on Chief Drygeese Territory in Treaty 8, the traditional home of the Yellowknives Dene and the North Slave also known as Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. I am thankful I was given the opportunity to live in such a beautiful Northern place, and it taught me how to love the land we walk on, appreciate the beauty in every tree nook, and reflect on my colonialist settler stance and impact.
Throughout my studies, I have focused my work on expanding my understanding of the world and the lives that live within it. I explore the world through digital media and create art that challenges the norm and dives into the strangeness. I am learning every day, and I like to gear my work in the realm of critical disability studies, queer utopias, intersectional feminisms, and anti-colonial and anti-racism frameworks. My overall goal is to help make a more inclusive and equitable world for the marginalized and misunderstood through the practice of digital art and media. Most recently, I have been focusing on the inaccessibility of the Montreal public transit system by dabbling in the world of games and phone applications.
I am looking forward to being involved in the AIM Lab to learn, absorb, help, and discover accessibility through a new lens.
