News, analysis and commentary by UBC Journalism students


Kerry Blackadar


Kerry Blackadar is a graduate student at U.B.C’s School of Journalism and plans to specialize in Health and Wellness.

In May 2007, Kerry graduated from U.B.C. with a bachelor degree in English Literature and enough books to start her own library.

Journalism was truly the only career option for Kerry who has enjoyed interviewing and reporting since she was a child. Her first interview subjects were the family cats who became the focus of a low-budget film project that never aired beyond the Blackadar living room.

In recent years, Kerry has been an intern at C.T.V. Vancouver and a freelance writer and features editor for Bridge Magazine, a fashion publication.  

Kerry loves to travel, drink coffee, and finds deep satisfaction in making lists and checking them off.
