Editor-in-Chief, FLARE

 

Who we are:

 

FLARE is the Canadian millennial’s guide to pop culture, current events, feminism, fashion and beauty. We understand that the interests and passions of young women are vast and not to be underestimated, and we want to have a real conversation about everything that matters right now, whether it’s the constantly evolving #MeToo movement, last night’s episode of The Bachelor or the best shade-inclusive foundation line. In other words, we don’t spoon-feed our readers the same-old regurgitated clickbait. Instead, we push the conversation further. We believe in equality, we believe in representation and we believe in women supporting women. Our mission? To inform, entertain and empower readers in their personal, professional and political lives.
