Miranda Monahan (she/her) is a freelance journalist and online English teacher from Windsor, Ontario. Monahan is an advocate for freedom of expression and decided to dedicate her time to The Matchstick because of the opportunity it provides her to use the skills she developed in journalism school to help others. Monahan hopes to see an end to the unjust torture and murder of journalists who are persecuted just for doing their jobs. In her free time, she enjoys reading, taking photos, and shooting and editing videos. Most of the photos and videos she shoots are of cityscapes, animals, nature, people and objects. One series of books she recommends is the Night Trilogy by Elie Wiesel.
