Why am I so incredibly excited you ask?
Well, today I am going to meet up with Greg Pratt, my previous Freelance Journalism instructor from UVic, to have an interview with him about his awesome career in Journalism.
Why am I having an interview with Greg you ask?
Well I had this sweet story idea, so I pitched it to a local newspaper at the University of Victoria called the Martlet and I recieved an instant reply to write a feature for the paper!! 😀
Look MOM I’m a real Journalist!!!
The Martlet newspaper is a great independent publication showcasing a handful of amazingly talented writers from right here in Victoria. http://www.martlet.ca/
This newspaper has a wonderfully driven purpose to share information, break down social barriers and run as a society of like-minded people. It’s extremely community oriented and focuses on a range of meaningful topics. I was quite touched by a recent feature called “Following Brian’s Bliss” written by Kier Robins, about a professors passing. You can read the heartwarming article here.
Finding a mentor is very important to me and Greg may not realize it yet, but he is already a strong influential person in my life. What a perfect person to start my journalism career with. 🙂
I am so honored to write for Martlet. 🙂 Wish me luck! My first big story starts here!!
May your week be full of love and knowledge ❤
