Hello everyone! I’m a third-year Microbiology and Immunology undergraduate student at Dalhousie University. As a new member of Indigo Girls, I feel incredibly excited to be a part of an organization that values empowering self-identifying women and feminism as a whole as much as I do. Growing up in the Halifax area, I had strong, inspiring female role models, and I look forward to meeting many more as we expand our branch. I aim to give this back to the community, hoping to inspire and provide mentorship to young girls and women through Indigo GIrls. I can’t wait to be a part of the positive impact this organization will bring and look forward to what the future holds!
My name is Haley Glazebrook and I am so excited and grateful to have the opportunity to bring Indigo Girls to the East Coast with my co-branch leader Emily! I am a fourth-year Microbiology & Immunology student and member of the Dalhousie Varsity Women’s Soccer Team. Growing up in Halifax, involvement in my community has always been super important to me! I hope to provide young girls with a sense of community and a safe, non-judgemental, inclusive, supportive environment and I can’t think of a better way to do this than with Indigo Girls!
Marketing and Communications Leader
Hello everybody! My name is Hope and I’m a third-year student studying Commerce at Dalhousie University. I’m originally from Ottawa but have chosen to come to Halifax to continue my education. Being a new member with Indigo Girls, I’m excited to be included in such an uplifting, inspiring and supportive organization that promotes feminism and allows young girls to be a part of an inclusive community allowing them to reach for the stars. During my free time I enjoy being with friends and family, cooking and biking. I’m fortunate to be a part of such an amazing group and cannot wait to see what the future holds!
Financial and Fundraising Leader
My name is Katelyn Dickey, I am so excited to be involved with IGG Halifax! I believe in the strength and community that women create together, and I want to play a part in the empowerment of our next generation of leaders, creators, and disruptors. As an entrepreneurship student at Saint Mary's University, I spend a lot of time making space for women in business. I am excited to utilize my studies as the Financial and Fundraising Leader for the Halifax Branch!
Equity and Inclusion Leader
My name is Sarah and I’m a first year Master’s of Science student in Microbiology and Immunology at Dalhousie University. I’ve been working with kids at overnight summer camps since I was 16 years old in Ontario. Since moving to Halifax for my Bachelor’s of Science degree, I’ve worked as a Counsellor, Head Counsellor and Camper Care Director at Brigadoon Village, an overnight camp for children and youth with chronic illnesses and other life challenges. I’m so excited to take on the role of Equity and Inclusion Lead, and will lean on my experiences from volunteering as the Events and Outreach Lead for Dalhousie’s Indigenous Health Interest Group, and Vice President of Dalhousie’s Student Charity Fashion Design Society.
Girls' Club Leader
Welcome to Indigo Girls Group! I'm Sarah Savoy and I'm a MSc. candidate in Microbiology and Immunology at Dalhousie University. I'm thankful to work with fellow women who feel as passionate as I do about gender equity and encouraging women to be unapologetically themselves. Despite the advances that we and our fellow feminists have accomplished, we still encounter adversity: within political legislation, institutional inequities, health care, social policy, multimedia, our relationships with others, and more. There is still a great need to teach young girls to analyze these aspects of life through a critical lens, encourage them to work together, and help them to discover confidence within themselves. Happy to be part of the Indigo Girls family and help cultivate an equitable environment in Halifax!
Girls' Club Leader
My name is Stephanie Grantham and I’m a medical sciences student at Dalhousie University going into my fourth year of undergrad. I am thrilled to be a part of the team to bring Indigo Girls to the East Coast! Growing up, I felt isolated from other girls in my community, and I think Indigo Girls is a great way to bring together Halifax youth to make a sincere difference in their journey through life.
