Write about a York Alumnus that inspires you
One York alumnus that inspires me is Paula Todd – a Canadian Journalist, investigative reporter, and lawyer, among other things.
Todd earned her BA in English Literature from York University, as well as her L.L.B from Osgoode Hall Law School.
She has had an extremely successful career in journalism and reporting, having written articles for The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, Macleans Magazine, Canadian Living, and many more. During her time at York University, Todd was also a co-editor for York’s Excallibur, where she was a leading member of the campaign which secured independent funding for the newspaper.
I can not even begin to say how much of an inspiration she is for me – nor can I truly do justice to her storied career through a short blurb. Check out this Wikipedia article to learn a bit more about her!
