Journalist

Location icon Canada

I'm interested in how people live and interact with each other in the world. I think journalists can connect people with their community and provide them with relevant information. I'm an avid reader and I enjoy a good discussion. I'm passionate about radio and interviewing. Topics that interest me include, human rights, health, the environment, culture, and globalization.
