Pipestone Flyer gains new reporter

Hello readers, my name is Amelia Naismith, I'm a reporter/photographer and the newest addition to the Leduc/Wetaskiwin Pipestone Flyer.

NATURAL CURIOSITY – The Leduc/Wetaskiwin Pipestone Flyer’s new reporter Amelia Naismith has a streak of natural curiosity.

Hello readers, my name is Amelia Naismith, I’m a reporter/photographer and the newest addition to the Leduc/Wetaskiwin Pipestone Flyer.

I graduated from Lethbridge College with a diploma in communications, majoring in print journalism in 2012. I’ve spent the last three years at Ponoka News as a reporter, with periodic trips over to Rimbey whenever the paper there needed an acting editor.

I made the decision to become a journalist back in Grade 10 after I came to terms with my streak of natural curiosity, or nosiness as my family called it. I also have a great interest in writing.

Pre-Grade 10 my efforts were solely focused on fiction writing and other literary pursuits but I felt I needed formal education in something a little more stable in case my life plan of becoming the next JK Rowling doesn’t pan out.

While I still spend a lot of my off time writing I’ve realized that I like the work my “back up plan” entails so much that I’ve decided I will just have to do both.

In my short time in the industry I have discovered some of my favourite topics to cover include human interest pieces, issues school boards are facing and rodeos; I’m a cowgirl at heart and grew up riding horses through the Rocky Mountains.

Another interest of mine is soccer and having played for 10 years during school I’m quite familiar with the soccer fields in Millet. Now I’m really looking forward to getting to know other areas of the town as well as the other communities and people the Leduc/Wetaskiwin Pipestone Flyer serves.
