I remember one night as a little girl I was watching The National on CBC with my dad and I asked him who the man on the TV was, he replied: "That's Peter Mansbridge. He's one of the most trusted men." Since that day, that's all I've ever wanted to be.

Years later in high school, I realized the job entailed more than just reading the news and that's when I feel in love with Journalism.

One of my biggest pet peeves are when people spread gossip, especially when its not truth.  Journalism is my passion because I want to spread truth. It's amazing how many Canadians talk about our work out east, but are spreading the wrong information.

I can't wait to use my schooling, knowledge and connections in order to spread truth about everyday actions that effect us all and to give a voice to those who don't have one.


I dream of being a strong reputable broadcast reporter, to bring my tenacious teamwork to the newsroom, and out on the field with me. My natural curiosity of the world is what pushes me to get all of the questions answered.

When I see a fire truck pass me on the street, I always want to follow it and figure out what is going on around me.

I love being knowledgeable about the world around me, but not at all in a superficial way. I believe that in the news world and in the personal world there are limits of what is appropriate information to pass on. Using ethics, I believe that when a child is kidnapped the public needs to know information about the situation in order to help the victims family as well as protect other future victims. The approach needs to be personal, and the family needs to know you would like to talk to help, not to exploit. I am the journalist that will take the extra step to make sure I am trusted, therefore allowing me to get the whole story and not just outer image.

Writing for print or online can be hard if you don't know the difference between the styles. Broadcast news writing is short and to the point, while print can differ depending on the situation and medium. I have years of experience writing for newspapers and magazines. Traveling and meeting new people is the best part of writing, and there is always an obvious difference between he writers who experience their subject versus those who don't. Talk to the readers and listeners, as if you are only explaining the subject to one person and they will all feel as if you are only talking to them.
