Meet Our Team Members! - Olivia Stein
Hello! My name is Olivia Stein and I am the Grant Writer and Reusable Menstrual Supplies Research Assistant for Free Periods Canada. I have been involved with Free Periods for 11 months now! I would have to say my favourite part about being involved with FPC is how motivated and supportive our team is.
What were your interests when you were a kid?
As a kid, I was a huge Greek mythology nerd. I also loved ballet & I practiced for 10 years.
Why should people care about menstrual equity?
No person should ever have to go without essential health supplies due to a financial barrier, especially when a lack of menstrual products can lead to physical and psychological harm. Furthermore, on principle, menstrual supplies are a right and should be freely supplied by workplaces & educational institutions.
Do you have any pets? Can you include pictures of them?
My family has an English Setter named Charlie. He is incredibly sassy, loud and needy, but is ultimately quite lovable.
What book/movie/song/album changed your outlook on life?
I love Viktor Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning”. It is a beautiful yet heartbreaking book, which always helps me recenter myself when I’m feeling lost.
