Ming Canaday

Ming Canaday was a Policy Fellow with RespectAbility. She recently completed coursework for a master’s degree in the History of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science. During her time in Europe, Canaday traveled extensively on the continent and to the University of Cape Town in South Africa to complete her dissertation research on contemporary attitudes toward rising Chinese migration to that region.

From 2009 to 2013, she earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon, where she triple-majored in International Studies, Chinese and Asian Studies. During her undergraduate career, Canaday spent time in China interning at Justice for All, a disability advocacy organization that serves individuals with disabilities as well as individuals with HIV/AIDs and Hepatitis B.

After graduation, Canaday pursued a certificate at the City University of New York in Disability Studies to better advocate for individuals with disabilities. She also completed a summer internship at Human Rights Watch, assisting with research on issues related to China’s policies toward people with physical or mental impairments.

She recently wrote about her experiences in Foreign Policy: “I Was Rescued from a Chinese Orphanage. My Friend Wasn’t.”
