I am currently a third-year journalism student at Ryerson, and I’m excited to say I’ll be going on exchange in the winter semester. I started my journalism career as a sports writer and photographer, and have since branched out to film review and news reporting, although photography still holds a special place in my heart. I’m unsure the exact path I want my career to go, but if National Geographic comes knocking, I’d jump at the chance.
