Greetings comrades, my name is Ben Macintosh, and I will be one of the managing editors for the 2019-2020 school year. You will be seeing a lot of me around campus this semester, so it is probably best I introduce myself.
After finishing my journalism diploma at Holland College, I decided to take advantage of the two-and-two program between Holland College and UPEI. I am now in the second and final year of my Journalism degree here at UPEI.
While at Holland College I did two, month-long internships. One with the Halifax Star and one with The Miramichi Leader, in Miramichi, N.B. Those internships allowed me to write and photograph every type of subject; arts, community issues, court stories, politics, and sports. The placement in Miramichi eventually landed me a summer job where I was able to refine my skills further.
As a journalism student looking to be more involved on campus, working for the school paper is a great way to meet students and continue to improve as a writer.
I love writing about any subjects, so if you have ideas, feel free to message me at Benjamin Macintosh on Facebook, @notbenmacintosh on twitter, @bmacintosh11 on Instagram, or my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
