News, analysis and commentary by UBC Journalism students


Robyn Smith


Robyn Smith applied to journalism school after some simple undergraduate math: english + politics = political journalist. She had heard that good journalism is recognizing and stating worldly truths as they are happening, and was tired of valuing the truth in retrospect.

The additional computation of outdoorsy fun – smog = Vancouver was the clincher. Robyn favours reporting on international and local political activity, but tries her luck at arts reporting on the radio every now and then.

Links to her clippings can be found on her interweb site, or you can follow her chirpin’ on Twitter.
