Online writer profile: Robert Kerr

From Centennial College News:

"How far would you go to find the right career? International student Robert Kerr uprooted himself from his Cambridge, England, home to teach English in Japan, then came to Canada to study Online Writing and Information Design at Centennial College. After travelling most of the way around the globe, Kerr is confident he's made the right move.

“I was looking to study something a little bit unique,” recalls Kerr, 25. He came to that life-altering conclusion after he attended a documentary film festival in Toronto. It prompted him to contemplate journalism, but didn't like the idea of returning to school for two or more years. “I chose Centennial's online writing program because it prepares you for journalism but focuses on storytelling.”"
