Lauren Kaljur is a Canadian-Estonian globetrotter whose background in international political studies led her to host a world news and views show called The End of The World News on UBC's CiTR 101.9FM. With the goal of making world news relevant to a local audience, coverage included interviewing a Vancouver EMDR trauma counsellor about military related PTSD, as well as a Quebec author on his experience facing a SLAPP lawsuit from mining giant Barrick Gold. Seeking to bolster her letter to-the-editor and oped portfolio, she has landed in the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of British Columbia. Her gauge for success? That it makes us care. That it makes us think. No matter which boundary-jamming format, radical inclusivity takes precedence. Find her on twitter @lorin12.
