These are loosely organized based on the degree of pride I feel at having achieved them:
- 2013 Communication Bronze Award for Magazine Writing in the Biography category from Truck Writers of North America. (For a feature story titled No Experience Necessary, which I wrote while on an internship with Today’s Trucking magazine in the summer of 2012)
- Graduated with high distinction. (Given to students who graduate with a grade point average of 3.50 or higher)
- CBC internship (September 2013)
- Scholarship from Truck Writers of North America, TWNA. (They sponsored my internship with Today’s Trucking magazine in the summer of 2012).
- Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence in the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus (UTSC) Joint Journalism program in the School of Communications, Media and Design for having the highest academic performance in my year.
- University of Toronto Scarborough third Honours List for 2011-2012
- University of Toronto Scarborough fourth Honours List for 2012-2013
(The award is given out based on academic merit alone, to a student with a grade point average of 3.70 or higher)
- Some other scholarships given based on academic merit to dependents of U of T faculty and staff. (These really helped lift the burden of tuition costs. Thank you.)
