Gerrit De Vynck

Born in South Africa and raised in the lakes and forests of northern British Columbia, I’ve been studying journalism and politics at Ottawa’s Carleton University since 2009. I’ve reported for The Charlatan in Ottawa, interned at CTV B.C. in Vancouver and worked as a reporter and managing editor of Palestine News Network English in Bethlehem, Palestine. I love going places, meeting new people and listening to and passing on their stories.
