Michael Styles

Multi-media Journalist

Location icon Canada

I'm a journalist studying at Conestoga College. Print and interview focused, but a competent photographer.

Providing context is an essential part of journalism, especially within a community. I'm trying to use the tools I've learned at Conestoga to do that. Local stories are more important now than ever.

The reality of one's own community needs to be accessible, and I think journalists are in the best position to do that.
