Born and raised in Cambridge, Ont., I grew up in a multicultural community that led me to appreciate people’s stories from all over the world. I have always taken an interest in presenting these stories through my exceptional written and verbal communication skills.
I graduated from Carleton University in June 2012 with a double major in journalism and human rights. I kicked off my career as a journalist by heading to Ghana for a two-month internship with Farm Radio International in April and May. When I returned to Canada, I completed a four-month internship with the Ottawa Citizen as a city desk reporter.
Shortly after completing my internship at the Citizen, I began writing for iPolitics in Ottawa, where I currently work as a reporter focusing on foreign affairs, and citizenship and immigration issues.
Aside from my journalism and communications pursuits, I enjoy long-distance running, spending time with my friends and family, and walking my dog. I self-identify as a news junkie, dog lover and athlete.
