A LOVE OF ONE's OWN
As Features Editor at The Eyeopener, I directed the paper's largest special issue ever: 22 articles published on our themed microsite along with a pdf issue.
A Love of One's Own turns our annual Valentine's Day issue on its head, examining how love and sex exist outside of relationships.
Whether its speaking your own love language, breaking free from codependency, expressing your individual queer identity or not having enough time for dating, the project encourages us to examine love on an individual level.

tHE HUSTLE ISSUE
During my time as Communities Editor, I managed the Hustle Issue—The Eyeopener's first ever online-only special issue.
The eight-piece series focuses on student burnout and challenges the systemic issues present within hustle culture.
From retiring the identity of overachiever, to making money from your hobbies, to setting boundaries in a friendship, to handling the professional side effects of a global pandemic, this issue explores the limits of what it means to be at your limit.

As a summer reporter for Metroland's Fairway Division, I contributed to a special issue on the housing crisis in the Cambridge, Kitchener-Waterloo, New Hamburg and Guelph areas.
I wrote a variety of articles for the project, including a service series on affordable housing in each city, protest organizer and attendee profiles and explainers on the situation.
The issue was published in print in the four Fairway papers as well as on their separate websites.
