"My interest in human geography came to me while I was completing my undergrad in Theater at Brock. While I have always been extremely passionate about acting I discovered a new passion through a Geography of Gender course. Learning about the many relationships between humans and the various spaces we occupy not only facilitated a deeper understanding of the stage environment but also allowed for me to start thinking about my own life in many new and intriguing ways. I then decided to pursue this new interest through Brock`s Geography MA program. I am now exploring the spatial policing of hierarchies of legitimacy in trans* cyberspaces and the effects of this on identities and practices. While it is still very much a work in progress I look forward to continuing my research and broadening my skills within the Geography MA program. Switching disciplines has not come without its challenges; however, the expansion of my knowledge base and the development of new skills have been very beneficial and extremely rewarding."
