Hi, everyone! My name is Mya and I’m an intern at Rat Creek Press this year. I’m a third-year Professional Communications student at MacEwan University, minoring in journalism. I’ve always loved writing, and I’ve been jotting down terrible poetry and half-baked stories for as long as I can remember. I’m excited to be able to tell your stories. 

I was lucky enough to write for RCP last summer as a community journalist, and this year I get to do a few more things. I’ll be writing articles, attending events, and working on newsletters and social media posts as well as any other communications tasks. I will also be available to help the seven community leagues in the area with articles and advertising. 

Another interesting project I’ll be working on this year is researching the history of the neighbourhoods and the leagues in the RCP area and writing their stories. But most of all, I’m excited to be out in the community getting to know everyone this spring and summer! 

When I’m not typing away on my laptop, I enjoy baking, playing trombone or piano, and watching feel-good sitcoms. 

Feel free to contact me with any news tips or story ideas you might have at mya@ratcreek.org
