Gloria Mellesmoen - Convocation Speaker

June 11, 2015

Gloria Mellesmoen, undergraduate student in Linguistics, was chosen to be a speaker at the June 2015 convocation. Congratulations Gloria!

In pursuing a degree in English and linguistics, Gloria Mellesmoen used linguistic analysis to explore her love for medieval and post-modern literature. Outside of class, she held executive positions in the Linguistics Student Union, the English Student Union, and the Society of Arts and Social Sciences. She also served as the education faculty’s representative on the Simon Fraser Student Society board of directors. Presenting at the 2015 Northwest Linguistics Conference and working in SFU's Applied Phonetics Lab solidified her interest in exploring the world through research. This September, Gloria will begin a master’s in linguistics at the University of Toronto.
