My name is Sara Giroux, I’m a grade 11 student doing my co-op position here at RAM Media Video and Social Media Management.

My interest in journalism started when I was 11 years old and I first participated in a writing workshop being offered to students to a few schools in my area.

I was the only kid who signed up for it and was so sure I was going to hate it.

Looking back on it now, it’s almost surprising to think about how far off I was. I remember a specific activity we did, we were partnered up and were told to recite our favourite or most important memory whilst our partner documented it.

We were supposed to pay close attention to how our partner told their story and the feeling they were expressing through their words.

It was through that program I discovered my love of writing and hearing people’s stories.
