I am here to assist you in engagement tools, collaberating with the online community and responding to your e-mails! I am volunteering with TIG on behalf of Katimavik, a Canadian organization who is responsible for placing youth between 17 and 21 in two different communities across Canada over a 6 month period. There are 11 volunteers in my group working full time hours throughout the week. We are based in Toronto Ontario for this rotation and I am so pleased and excited to be part of Taking IT Global for the next three months. Perviously I spent two years getting a diploma in Converged Journalism from St. Clair College. I got intrigued with Taking IT Global because as a journalist I report unbiased news to the public. I started to get feedback about my articles and news in general: everything I am reading is "NEGATIVE". I think Taking IT Global is the perfect hub for taking our media sources and information and giving people the tools to act on this "negative," information and turn it into something positive.
