Toronto Star welcomes new group of year-long interns

Earlier this month the Toronto Star announced that it had selected seven new full-time journalists into its year-long internship program.

The seven journalists were selected from hundreds of applicants early in their career, who applied to the program, which provides hands-on experience and professional training to emerging journalists.

Ghada Alsharif, Joshua Chong, Clarrie Feinstein, Maria Iqbal, Demar Grant, Bailey Martens, and Alessia Passafiume began working at the Star earlier this month and will report on local issues over the course of their internships.
