Jen Otto is a MA Student in Geography at Memorial University and a Trebek Initiative Grantee. She’s passionate about storytelling and community-led climate change response. Jen seeks to amplify community-identified housing needs within Inuit Nunangat, with a focus on Nunatsiavut. To do so, she engages with visual storytelling to centre community voices and illustrate how these crises are playing out in the North. More broadly, Jenine aims to contribute to our understanding of how storytelling can be used to bridge communication gaps between governments and communities to ultimately address urgent climate change priorities.
