Felicia Clement

Felicia Clement graduated in 2014 with High Distinction from Wilfrid Laurier University in Honours Anthropology and Global Studies. At Laurier she was able to critically engage with global issues and showed a keen interest in the areas surrounding conflict and security, migration, humanitarianism, and human rights. Her main research focused on a comparative analysis of the universal and the particular in relation to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

During her undergraduate degree Felicia was able to intern in Ghana for the Human Rights Advocacy Centre. Her main project focused on access to healthcare for marginalized communities. She also did a presentation to youth about gender-based violence, attended a seminar about the impacts of corporal punishment as well as observed and reported on the conditions on women and children in the Gambaga Witch Camps. Upon her return, from Ghana, Felicia was chosen to intern for Project Ploughshares where she researched contemporary conflicts for their annual armed conflicts report.

At Balsillie, Felicia will further her studies by delving deeper into the complexities enveloped in protecting vulnerable populations from discrimination and violence and explore ways to rebuild a sense of belonging and identity.
