Diana Anthony

Non-Fiction Editor
Diana Anthony is a graduate of Criminology (Hons.) from the University of Manitoba. She enjoys engaging in debates intended to spark meaningful social change globally. Her undergraduate Honours thesis entitled: “Many are called, “none” are chosen examines the ways in which racialized groups, in particular, African Americans and Indigenous Canadians are discriminated using the law. 
 
She believes that we live, talk, and do Sociology and attempts to draw these Sociological connections through everyday lived experiences. Given her passion for writing, she worked for the student press (The Manitoban) between 2016 and 2018 interviewing and writing news articles for weekly publication. During this time, she also worked alongside instructors from various faculties, carrying out duties such as marking/grading essays, and providing feedback aimed at improving students’ writing quality. 
 
A strong advocate against ageism, she believes age should not be a determinant of one’s capabilities or potential. She enjoys watching famous tennis star Serena Williams, who continues to prove that one’s life does not end in their 20s. Though having no background in film, Diana hopes to become a screenwriter, eventually breaking into Hollywood someday.
