Co-op student Sydney Ross.
Arnprior Chronicle Guide Co-op student Sydney Ross is an avid photographer.
Hello Arnprior, my name is Sydney Ross.
I come from Arnprior District High School’s Co-op department and now I am going to be writing for the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC until about mid-June.
Co-op, as most of you might know, is a class program to set several students up into a workplace environment of their choice.
This program is to give students like myself a sense and atmosphere of the career we’re going into, whether the career being a mechanic, a nurse, a baker, or a journalist – the career I am striving for.
Journalism speaks to my heart. I don’t know why I love writing so much. Perhaps it’s my need to plaster my ideas down quickly before I forget them, or simply because I’m never great with concluding a story so I just keep writing.
How my love for journalism came about, I’ll never truly know. Writing for the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide has been a dream of mine for quite some time.
Photography is another career option I’d love to pursue. I’ve always liked the idea of capturing a photograph and telling the story that goes along with it.
Whether it’s journalism or photography I end up doing later on as a job, I hope I can pursue both.
Outside of school, in the far away little town of Pakenham, I’m pretty simple and straight-forward.
As I go through the different phases and chapters of my life, I am discovering that I love to draw – and I love to sing even more. Sometimes I’m out with my wonderful father hunting or fishing. Other times I can be spending a Sunday with my Garage Band at Main Street School of Music.
Again, I’m pretty simple. Some days I can be the biggest social butterfly; and other times I can shy away into my own little world. This is completely normal for me, although my English teacher, Mr. McLaughlin, may disagree.
I’ve basically told you all about myself – and now it’s time for me to bring you the action of your community. I hope to learn lots and deliver you folks the news you deserve.
Placement at the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide is exactly what I’m looking for; I can’t wait to grow from this work experience!
