Cristina Jaimungal is a PhD student in the Department of Social Justice Education (SJE) and Comparative, International, and Development Education (CIDE) at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE).

This has resulted in the initiation of professional workshops, the first departmental award exclusively for racialized students, the creation of a student-led speaker series, and more student involvement on committees. She brings her experiences as an educator and researcher to the position of External Commissioner, and intends to focus on anti-racism, accessibility, and decolonization.
