The CBC internship was a positive learning experience for me because I was able to put everything I’ve learned at school into practice. 

From the first day, my supervisor, the producer for Toronto Local News asked me how comfortable I was with talking to people, I replied “very,” and from there was assigned to chase stories. I was surrounded by reporters, editors and industry professionals who, although were busy, always made time to answer my questions and give me feedback on my work. Within 6 weeks, my confidence grew and after this experience I’m excited to graduate and join the journalism workforce.
