Meet the Team
Executive Team, 2017-2018
Mamta Manhas, Co-President
Mamta Manhas is a fourth year journalism and human rights student at Carleton University. She is the current co-president of Carleton’s Journalist for Human Rights as well as the co-host of CJHR’s radio show Speak Out. Never without her headphones, Mamta loves music and podcasts more than life itself and they especially help in her long commute from Orleans. When she’s not ranting about something human rights related, find her cuddling with her dog, Gray.
Louisa Simmons, Co-President
Louisa is a third year journalism student at Carleton University with a passion for human rights related causes. Any conversation with her will inevitably divert towards human rights issues or her love for her home province of Newfoundland and Labrador (which she talks about almost non-stop.) She loves CJHR not only for the contributions it makes towards Journalists for Human Rights, but also because the club is a space of positivity and encouragement. In her free time, Louisa loves to cook, exercise and hike (and annoy people with stories about Newfoundland – which she will never stop doing.)
Grace McGrenere, Radio Host of “Speak Out”
Grace McGrenere is a second year journalism and human rights student at Carleton. It is also her second year as a member of Journalists for Human Rights. This year she will be partnering alongside Mamta to host JHR’s radio show, Speak Out.
Sherlyn Assam, Events Coordinator
Sherlyn Assam is a journalism and political science student at Carleton University. In her free time, she likes to read, write, listen to spoken word, watch Tangled, and work towards the eradication of human trafficking.
Cora Hansen, Online Editor
Cora Hansen is a third year journalism and human rights student at Carleton University. Her days are filled with podcasts, coffee and laughter. When she isn’t working, you can find her behind a good book at her cottage.
Lucas Campoli, Treasurer and Secretary
