Abigail Chan

My name is Abby but I prefer Abigail. I live in Richmond Hill and is currently pursuing the major of Journalism. One of my top priorities in life is to gain experience and to be able to apply it in the real world.

The reason why I want to be a journalist is because I want to inform the people about the events happening around the world. It's the feeling that there are things happening around our world that people should know about - regardless of whether it affects them directly or not.

As a journalist, the duty is to give the readers a chance to find their opinion about a certain situation and the opportunity for them to do something about what they have just read. More than just reading an article and having the information exit immediately after it enters the mind, I want to write about world events or simply events in our community that will make people think, "Something needs to be done."
