Kristy M. Wright
Welcome to my WordPress site!
My name is Kristy. In 2012 I graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa with a high honours degree in journalism and a minor in film studies. Originally from Fairport, NY, I maintain dual citizenship between the United States and Canada. Currently I’m traveling around the world with Disney on Ice as a figure skater.
This blog showcases some of my most recent work. I’m trained in journalism and communications across several media, ranging from radio, print, television, and online journalism.
Use the “Pages” sidebar to navigate this site. Under each page, you’ll be able to find links to posts explaining the piece, and in those posts are links directly to the work itself on websites including YouTube, Flickr, Dropbox and more.
If you’re interested in what I do or have any questions, send me an email at email@example.com.
MORE ABOUT ME
I’ve worked everywhere on the spectrum of media from public relations to features to hard news reporting. However, my background in debate and blogging has led me to enjoy writing for media where I can inject analysis. Although I consider myself a jack of all trades, I have particular interests in the arts, politics, fringe sports, and the intersection of media and popular culture.
For my work, I have won the CTV Scholarship in Broadcast Journalism and the FHS Media Award.
I am currently on the road with Disney on Ice as a figure skater for the tour Dare to Dream. Since I can’t work in an office, I like to maintain my media skills by volunteering to help virtually with websites, social media channels, and the like. I also keep my skills sharp by doing live media interviews, meet-and-greets, and special performances as PR for Disney on Ice.
Because of the opportunity I have to travel with Disney on Ice, I like to blog about some of my favorite sightseeing memories. Have a look at my “Highlights” series on the “Blog” page to read more.
