Danica Samuel

Danica Samuel is a freelance journalist with a special interest in multimedia storytelling. Her blog danicasamuel.com features profiles and reviews on emerging artists, fashion designers and startup businesses in Toronto. Danica is a contributing writer to online magazines such as foundmissing.com and ByBlacks.com. She is also a correspondent for Manifesto TV.

Firmly rooted in Toronto’s hip hop culture, when Danica isn’t covering underground performances and art shows, she’s searching for new stories on the streets and on social media. She’s a self-professed Instagram addict and Twitter pro.

But Danica’s ultimate passion is championing female empowerment projects. At age 16 she was part of a mission in Kenya and Tanzania to raise funds for the Limuru Girls School. While there she became one of the youngest females ever to conquer Mount Kilimanjaro.

It is that same bold determination, and relentless girl power that Danica brings to her broadcasting career. She is currently working on a mini-doc series about a controversial hair growth pill for women.

Selwyn Jacob: An Educator through Film

Thursday, 29 January 2015 00:00
Selwyn Jacob's teachable spirit is the driving force behind his films. Growing up in Trinidad & Tobago and then moving to Alberta in 1968, he always loved watching movies, documentaries and television shows.
Many remember Andrea Lewis as Hazel from the famous Canadian show ‘Degrassi’ and others fell in love with her as Hillary Duff’s best friend in the movie ‘Cadet Kelly’.
In 1999 Toronto lacked something so important in its music scene; recognition. When Ian Espinet and his friends went out partying many of the DJ’s forgot to pay homage to the older artists in the game. There was an overabundance of new music but little of the old. “It was as if the DJ’s caught Amnesia,” he says.
Jordon Manswell wasn’t nervous at all when he got on stage at the 2014 Battle of the Beat Makers Contest.
