I graduated with an English degree at Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2016. As long as I can remember I have loved the art of writing and storytelling. The journalism program will complement my BA (Hons) by allowing me to bring the stories and news to the listeners and readers. I gained experience as a general news reporter who wrote news stories for Kicker’s multimedia platform at the College of the North Atlantic.
