This morning I was notified by my program coordinator that I was the recipient of two Digital Media Gold Circle Awards with the Colombia Scholastic Press Association: one in the breaking news category, and another with the secondary news category!

I’m super proud of both pieces, especially since I worked with fantastic people for each piece.

Kiah Welsh and I spent a very long time working on a big data journalism piece: a comprehensive, interactive senate expense scandal timeline. It took a lot of work and research, but it turned out great.

Epse Currie, Andrea Fernandes and I busted it at Pearson International Airport when John Greyson and Tarek Loubani returned home after being held in Egypt for fifty days. We were brushing elbows with the national media, or in some cases, accidentally walked in front of the camera in the middle of a stand-up. 😉

Congratulations to all the award winners, but especially the Humber students and grads!

It’s 11:00 pm and I just finished posting all coverage of the return of John Greyson and Tarek Loubani to Canada. After being detained in a Cairo prison since Aug. 16 without charges, the two were finally allowed to leave Egypt.

It was such a fantastic story to cover and I’m so glad I was there with Andrea Fernandes and Espe Currie— we made a great team!
