Grace King

Grace King is 19 years old and hails from St. John’s, Nfld., located on the magical easternmost coast of Canada. She recently began her studies at the University of Toronto, where she is pursuing environmental studies and political theory, after an expedition to the Arctic in 2015 motivated her work on climate change and cultural change issues. She is specifically interested in how our relationship with the natural world is shaped by the arts. She loves stories, and she especially loves telling them — whether through prose, articles for student publications at the University of Toronto, photography or videography.
