    Welcome to MARL Precious!

    Precious

    My name is Precious Gauthier, and I am pursuing two undergraduate degrees at the University of Winnipeg. One degree in Biology and a second in English with a minor in Rhetoric, Writing and Communications. After that, I plan to pursue a Masters in Cultural Studies.

    Human Rights, to me, are all people being treated with equity and respect. For far too long as a society, we have behaved as though only certain people deserve that treatment. I was raised by a single mother who taught me to be proud of who I am and where I came from because, as a Black Indigenous woman, you can often struggle with your identity. These challenges have made me work to be more in tune with the many others who also face these challenges and need people to stand up for them in this fight for an inclusive society.

    I have always been passionate about standing up against injustices, which has guided me to focus on people being valued and the necessity of treating people with equity and respect. My goal is to be a Writer, and a lot of my writing is centred around building an inclusive society both in creative literature and the sciences. I am passionate about leaving the world better for future generations by supporting vulnerable and oppressed people.

    I have volunteered for years with different organizations, and I find it fulfilling to volunteer. It allows you to meet people with similar interests working towards a common objective. I have learned that there is no action too small when participating in community support. Being active in your community usually involves a lot of time and energy, so it is essential to find time for self-care. I do this by spending a lot of time doing different activities with my family.

    Learning that MARL is an organization that teaches people from many walks of life about human rights made me interested in working with their organization. Not only can I help teach others, but this is also a great organization to learn and grow as a person. MARL has a great bunch of people who are working toward making the world a better place for all people, and I want to be a part of that change and their team.
