Ruth TruongCommunications

Ruth is an Ottawa-born lover of food and films. She loves to try new recipes, and she loves to watch foreign and independent films at Bytowne Cinema (her favourite). She is a graduate of both uOttawa (B.A.) and Carleton (M.A.) with a background in English Literature and some experience in Digital Humanities. When she is not coordinating rentals of Bronson Centre’s non-permanent meeting & event spaces or posting Bronson RISE content, she is working on streamlining Bronson Centre’s online presence.

Outside of work, Ruth is gaining experience in mobilization and organization for decent work. She hopes to increase her capacity to give time and resources toward community care and mutual aid.
