Sara Gajic was raised in Pickering, Ontario, and recently graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in English and Political Science. Her interest in politics originates in political theory, and particularly in the role that virtue-based thinking can have in politics. Sara spent three years as a writer and front-line advisor for the Innis College Registrar’s Office, which gave her a crash course in writing about university policy. Having also written for her university’s newspaper, she felt prepared to take on a year-long Senior Thesis project. Sara spent two years as a residence don at the University of Toronto, providing academic, peer and crisis support for students. Sara has also worked as a legislative usher at the Ontario Legislature, which allowed her to see how political theory can inform governance at the provincial level. She is honoured to be part of that process in 2016-2017 as an OLIP intern.
