Alex Kurial


BA (U.S. History), Minor in Journalism, University of Victoria

Born in Vancouver, Alexander grew up on the west coast and spent his summers in San Diego with family. His passion for journalism and writing sparked in high school, where he undertook a lead role on the school paper. At the University of Victoria his love of reporting and telling stories grew. Soon he was working at the university paper, The Martlet, and reporting on many high profile figures and events. This included interviews with members of the Vancouver Whitecaps, along with Olympic and internationally recognized student athletes at UVic. In addition he covered major sporting events at school and around the city.

Alexander loves geography, history, and international affairs. He intends to make a difference through his journalism by shining a light on significant political and social issues both at home and around the world. He knows that the Carleton Masters of Journalism program will allow him to achieve these goals, while also hoping it will allow him to experience other countries and adventures around the world. Continuing to receive all access passes to major sporting events is also a key goal of Alexander’s. In his spare time he likes to eat Mexican food, enjoy the great outdoors (living in scenic British Columbia has made him spoiled in this regard,) and keep up to date on any and all sports.
