Having worked with James for many years at the University of Toronto’s student newspaper, The Varsity, I’ve watched him write investigative, data-heavy news stories, manage a team of dozens of news writers, and work to bring relevant stories to various sharable online platforms. James is a dedicated and tireless worker, and someone who never fails to bring a sense of calm and positivity to any work environment. I look forward to watching his many accomplishments in the years to come.
