Joyita’s interest in journalism began in high school. As part of her co-op program, Joyita worked as a production assistant on the show High School Rush on Rogers TV. By the time she arrived at Humber, she had done numerous field reports, and written and produced segments for a magazine show.
The Toronto resident chose Humber’s Bachelor of Journalism because of her interest in storytelling and audio-visual production, and the option of continuing her studies in graduate school at the end of her four years.
“I like that I’m getting the best of both worlds by having the hands-on, practical college experience while getting a degree. I had heard great things about the Journalism – Print and Broadcast program so when I found out about the degree being offered, I knew I wanted in.”
Joyita especially enjoys journalism because it’s an active field that can take her to different places at any time. She likes the constant learning and experiencing new situations and opportunities. Now, as an intern at MTV Canada and the national communications director at STAND Canada, an anti-genocide advocacy organization, she gets to put her skills into practice on a daily basis.
