I am really happy with how my internship went these past six weeks. I would highly recommend interning with NSIRN if you have any interest in investigative journalism – it allows you to hone your research skills, learn from one of Canada’s best journalists and be part of a project that has implications for the entire country. When I first got this internship, I had almost no conception of what it would be like or if I would enjoy it. I can confidently say that taking the risk and doing a type of journalism I had never forayed into before paid off.
