Mary Leong


Social Media / Strategic Communications / Web Development

Combining theory and practice

Mary is a self-motivated and creative social media and communications professional with 4+ years of experience developing strong online and in-person communities by translating social media successes into face-to-face engagement. She completed a BA in political science and psychology (minor) at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) in 2013. 

While there are many issues about which Mary cares deeply, she is especially passionate about women and leadership, especially in politics. She is always on the lookout for opportunities to help non-profits and advocacy organizations in these fields develop strategic communications plans to educate and build lasting relationships with their audiences. 

Mary is currently pursuing a MSc in politics and communications at the London School of Economics. She intends to go beyond the institutional and structural causes of political phenomena to examine their psychological causes. Her research interests focus on how new media is changing the way voters perceive and learn about politics, and its subsequent impact on political polarization and partisanship. She is also interested in discourses surrounding race, feminism, and intersectionality.
