Stephanie Lowe developed her passion for politics while covering local events as a summer radio reporter in her hometown of Owen Sound, Ontario. Stephanie is a recent graduate of OISE’s Master of Teaching Program within the University of Toronto and is an alumnus of Ryerson University’s School of Journalism where she earned a Bachelor of Journalism degree. While at Ryerson, Stephanie worked as a news intern at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s London, UK bureau. Her experiences in newsrooms and teaching placements in Ontario elementary classrooms have contributed to Stephanie’s interest in the impact that provincial politics has on the lives of all Ontarians. Stephanie has researched a wide range of policy issues including education, the environment and how legislative decisions affect those living in the province. She is now thrilled to be a member of the 2016-2017 OLIP team to learn about provincial politics from inside the Legislature.
