The Aim: to go to one of the poorest nations on earth, Mozambique, to report on humanitarian work being done by Canadians

Host organization: I’m hoping Iris Min will have me. They do fabulous work there. You can see the photos and newsletter updates at

Why? seriously… why did I go for a degree in journalism? To sit on my butt re-writing copy about the Alouettes or the Habs, or Twittering on behalf of some busy network news anchor? I want to report on stories that matter…. on people doing work that isn’t seen and is rarely praised, but which can be the difference between life and death for someone.

My words have to count for something. That’s why.

Words matter. Stories should too.
