Featured journalist: Freedom Chevalier
Today we're going to introduce you to a byline you won't soon forget -- that of freelancer Freedom Chevalier, a "rehabilitated thespian" and author of countless feature articles, several dramatic plays, short stories, songs, poems and even a gritty thriller set in the world of Canadian stand-up comedy of the 1990s (check out her Muck Rack portfolio for some of her work!). A Boston-based journalist who covers everything from tech to finance to politics, she got her start writing about professional wrestling for a small magazine back in the early 1980s and was drawn to journalism because she "can't ignore a story." She also appreciates social media's influence on news because it has made it more accessible and opened up the field to "community journalists who may not have had a platform previously." Freedom also promises she has heard every possible joke about her name, so maybe don't test out your fledgling comedic skills on her!
