Tett Centre hosts a production of Shakespeare’s Henry V

About

Michelle K Allan

Hello! My name is Michelle and I’m a Master of Journalism candidate at Ryerson. I am also a Junior Fellow at the Centre for Free Expression, where I study Canadian extremist groups.

I interned as a general assignment news reporter at the Globe and Mail during the Spring of 2020. Topics I covered included the Nova Scotia shooting, “murder hornets”, conversion therapy legislation, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Before starting my Masters, I was the lead reporter at Kingstonist. I care deeply about local news, and working full-time in immersing myself in and sharing Kingston’s stories was incredibly rewarding.

I have a Bachelor of Arts with Honours from Queen’s, where I majored in English Language and Literature. I held a wide array of jobs and internships throughout undergrad at publications such as The Beaverton, The Queen’s Journal, The Undergraduate Review, and Inquire. I also completed a foreign reporting student program at the Reuters offices in Prague with Transitions Online, an online media organization covering politics and news of Central/Eastern Europe.

If you’re interested in collaborating or hiring me for freelance work, I can be reached at contact@michelleallan.ca.
