About Me

I hold a bachelor's degree in Communication with a focus on Journalism and Digital Media, complemented by a minor in Anthropology.

My approach to journalism is rooted in the belief that we can reclaim its essence by fostering trust with our readers. 

What Is Journalism To Me?

I see journalism as a powerful tool for informing the public, driving change, and empowering individuals. It's more than just reporting news; it's about uncovering stories that matter, holding power to account, and giving voice to the voiceless. I believe it represents a bridge between communities. 

Core Values

Trust, accountability, humanity, and an unwavering commitment to remaining curious are a few of the core values I live by as a journalist and carry with me each day.

The world of fashion is seen as being glamorous. But all that glamour comes with a cost, as it is the second leading source of pollution in the world. That’s why Thomas Mo, the founder of Alberta Apparel, is challenging Canadians to shop more sustainably, especially this holiday season.

People tend to buy more items during the holiday season than any other time of year, so it is especially important to be made aware of the effect clothes shopping can have on the planet.
