I am an intrepid reporter, concise writer and constructive editor with more than a decade of journalistic experience working at the world’s largest news agency, Reuters.
Since April 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic, I started telling the stories of young people in the greater Toronto area for National Observer (and thanks to the federally-funded Local Journalism Initiative).
So I’m wondering, how are folks dating during social distancing? Who is virtually partying? Trying online gaming for the first time? Excited to go work on a farm this summer?
How are teenagers dealing with extended close parental proximity? Anyone finding themselves speaking more in their native tongue?
Who is terrified of what the future might bring, or of what they face right now?
