Sharon Samuel

Journalist

Location icon Canada

Living in Canada has been my dream since I was 12 years old. I landed in Kitchener, Ontario on Sept. 7, 2015 and my life has been great since then. At present, I am a journalism student at Conestoga College with lots of zeal and excitement about my new career and my new life in Canada. I also have a Bachelors' degree in English and Communication Skills from India.

I was a reporter/production manager at Spoke, Conestoga College's weekly newspaper. I have learned to research, interview, write and edit my news stories effectively. I have also learned how to shoot, edit and publish a video news story and I can cover events and take photos with my DSLR effectively.

I love what I am doing and I am passionate about it. I am not scared to try new things that come my way and I am positive that I will do everything needed to produce quality work.
