The end is near

Even if I can’t believe it, the calendar doesn’t lie. But now, I am stuck with the unbelievably time-consuming task of trying to decide what I want to do after I graduate. Usually, things fall into place for me. This has not been happening as much since I have started to find my perfect plan … Continue reading

IPP…. IPPP…. IPPPP

IPP…. IPPP…. IPPPP

About a year ago, I was introduced to my CreComm’s ‘Independent Professional Project’. I heard the second-years tales of the year-long project and then I was asked to pick something I wanted to focus on for a year. After much debate, I chose to shoot a documentary during my summer in Ghana. Literacy has always … Continue reading

To the stories that never happen…

Winnipeg is Back in the Game

Winnipeg is Back in the Game

Winnipeg has been making major headlines recently. These stories haven’t focused on the Manitoba election, or even Air Canada’s scandalous letter. No. They are focused on the Return of the Winnipeg Jets. A return 15 years in the making. A return whose hype is stronger than the team itself. But a return that is going … Continue reading

Having a Hand in Democracy

Today is election day in Manitoba. That’s right. Your day to turn political jargon into an election vote is here. Whenever there is an election, I always try to get informed enough that I could win a battle of wits if it ever came up. This year, volunteering with CJOB has escalated my knowledge to … Continue reading
