Amy MelissaAbout Me

I am currently a second year journalism student at Mount Royal University who is fascinated by people and their stories. I experiment with a variety of different mediums, but believe it’s the message that holds the most weight. My passion for global issues and inequality spurred my pursuit of journalism, and I am excited to see the places it will take me and the people I will meet.

Infographic 1

This is an infographic I made after looking at data released by the Calgary International Airport. It seems like August is the month to travel, but internationals happen to prefer Calgary in the winter - I'm assuming it's our ski hills drawing them in. This was created by using both Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

Infographic 2

This is an infographic I made after looking through data from the BMO Student Survey, the Government of Alberta, and Universities Calgary. University is extremely expensive, but the data shows that it is definitely worth the money. This is because the more education you have, the more likely you are to be employed. I used both Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to create this infographic.
