I covered many stories for the Concordia university student paper, The Concordian.
Linked here is a sample I wrote about the launch of Le Huffington Post Québec, the French Canadian branch of the media organization, in which I worked my way to interview Ariana Huffington during the launch press conference.
As part of the CUP newswire, the bureau chiefs would sometimes select pieces from the The Concordian and publish them on their wire. This story was written towards the end of the 2012 Quebec student conflict, at which point I had built a professional relationship with several student leaders.
In 2013, I contributed to an effort to help keep long-form feature journalism alive. SiLO Montreal was launched by a handful of Concordia grads who wanted to promote longer, in-depth pieces. This story is about Cabot Square, a park in downtown Montreal notorious for its rampant homelessness and criminality. This piece also explores more complicated issues like police brutality and mental illness.
