Flora graduated from the University of the Fraser Valley in 2018 with an honours degree in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. She received the prestigious Governor General’s Silver Medal for the highest academic standing of her graduating year. Flora also received the Psychology book prize, an award granted to an outstanding graduate from the Psychology department, as well as the Social, Cultural, and Media Studies Outstanding Achievement Award. Flora’s research interests relate primarily to sexual orientation, sexual health, and sexual and gender stereotyping.
In her free time, Flora can be found curating her collection of cacti and succulents, buying way too many books (and co-authoring one with her honour’s thesis supervisor), and binge-watching cartoons. She is currently pursuing a dual title PhD in Psychology & Women’s, Gender, and Sexualities Studies at Penn State University.
