Well, hello there!

My name is Dhriti (she/her) and I'm a freelance writer. I'm currently finishing the last year of my journalism undergrad at X University and learning all the magic tricks involved in telling a good story.

I'm super passionate about student press and have held the Communities, Features and Online Editor roles at The Eyeopener, X Uni's independent student paper. I'm also a Western Rep on the board for the Canadian University Press and work to support student papers across BC. As well, I completed an internship with Torstar in Summer 2021 and am always looking for my next freelance pitch.

While longform journalism is my bread and butter, I also have experience in the realms of news, arts and culture, science reporting, data journalism, podcasting, video and graphic design. Intersectionality, community and empathy are at the centre of any project I take on.

​​​​Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions and/or once-in-a-lifetime opportunities!
