Emilia Patiño Anaya

Toronto, ON

As the Bilingual Jack Talks Coordinator, Emilia facilitates the Jack Talks program across Canada with both anglophone and francophone speakers and organizers. 

She recently moved back to Toronto from Berlin, and is rediscovering Toronto after a few years abroad. She did her undergrad at the University of Toronto, where she studied History and Semiotics, and her masters at the London School of Economics, where she studied Comparative Politics. She’s been all over the place, but she’s excited to call Toronto home again! Emilia would have been a pundit only if it meant making puns for a living. Outside of work, you’ll find her reading, taking pictures, and cooking. 

My mental health revolution means education, openness, and available resources. It means that everyone has the information to help themselves and others; that the conversation is transparent and ongoing; and that support is readily accessible. It means that I’m working to make my job obsolete as quickly as possible!
