Hi I’m Kasandra DaSilva and I am a second year journalism student at Humber College. I am currently a general news reporter for the Humber Et Cetera. I am originally from the small Huron County town of Exeter. Now that I live in Toronto my life has changed for the better. I am now around so much culture and it makes me grateful for how culturally diverse our nation is.
I have always been interested in the media, and have always dreamed of living in the big city, which is what brought me here. I have a huge interest in mental health. Since being diagnosed with GAD, I have always wanted to be a self care reporter/blogger as I want to impact people’s lives just like mine was. Alongside being a mental health advocate, I would love to work with BuzzFeed Canada as their articles are truly inspiring, entertaining and cater to everyone. Overall I am an ambitious twenty year old who is currently living her life to the fullest.
