Mira Gitelman (she/her), BA Psychology Candidate minoring in Philosophy (Ryerson University, anticipated 2022), is a Research Assistant Volunteer at the SHiFT Lab. Mira started her undergrad in the BFA Performance Dance program at Ryerson, where dance soon became a valued hobby, and less a career. Mira’s keen interest for human behaviour inspired her application to Ryerson’s Psychology Program. She is interested in examining the various types of relationships through a feminist and social constructionist lens. She is passionate about sexual health education, desire, pleasure, and the ways in which heteronormative discourses affect these topics. Mira plans to continue academic career through graduate school within the clinical psychology field, with hopes of specializing in sex therapy.
