Hello everyone and welcome to my little corner of the internet world. My name is Amanda Pereira, I am an Ottawa based freelance writer, journalism graduate and current Professional Writing student at Algonquin College. I have held the positions of lifestyle editor and social media editor of the Algonquin Times, design editor for the winter 2016 issue of Glue magazine, as well as a general reporter for both. I have interned for Canadian Geographic magazine, Metro newspaper, wintranslation and have written freelance pieces for online publications such as Shifter magazine.
I am well trained in a variety of forms of journalism and writing that include magazine, online, newspaper, photojournalism, as well as radio and television broadcasting. I am also very experienced with various design programs such as Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and PremierPro.
I have a passion for writing, photography and travelling, with a desire to learn about the people, places and possibilities that this world holds.
In my spare time I enjoy baking, reading, painting, watching a good flick and obsessing about anything Harry Potter or Disney related.
