Getting to know a little more about Sarah Lawrynuik...
I'm a Canadian multimedia freelance journalist based in France, moving around Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
I work in radio, video, and digital print. I have been trained as a MOJO, or mobile journalist, and can file high-quality content for all platforms using only the tools in my backpack.
Before moving abroad, I worked for a number of years for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in Calgary, Winnipeg and Halifax. I also spent six months on a secondment in Lethbridge, Alberta where I worked as a one-woman bureau, filing for all platforms.
During my time with CBC, I was part of the team that won the RTDNA Charlie Edwards award for spot news, for our coverage of the tragic death of former Alberta Premier Jim Prentice. While in Halifax, I was also a part of the team that won two different national RTDNA awards: the Dan McArthur Award for excellence in in-depth and investigative journalism for Misogyny at Dal School of Dentistry, as well as the Dave Rogers Award for A Day in the Life of Nova Scotia.
I studied journalism at the University of King's College, specializing in video and radio news and documentary. Prior to that I studied Economics and Political Science at McGill University.
