As of earlier this month, I’m officially a journalism school graduate!
Being in Carleton journalism, I’ve always noticed the lack of diversity in terms of people of colour in the program. Honestly, in my graduating year, I can count less than 20. I’m posting this pretty late, but I had the opportunity to talk about diversity as a j-school student in this excellent audio documentary by my friend Arvin, another fellow 2018 j-school graduate and person of colour. He’s now rocking it as an associate editor for the Xtra, a Canadian queer news source. Check it out!
