Meet Kayla Jeanson, RRC’s “Blogger in Residence”

June 30, 2013

Blogger in ResidenceKayla Jeanson works and lives in Winnipeg as a freelance filmmaker and videographer, having recently graduated from the University of Manitoba’s Film Studies program. She is heavily involved in the contemporary and hip hop dance communities, and the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, and she has also studied at the School of Contemporary Dance.

Her penchant for telling stories visually has always been tied to the written word, and so it is with much excitement that she approaches the opportunity to be a “blogger in residence” at Red River College.

There are two things that she plans to do while working Winnipeg’s Greatest Summer Job:

  • First, she wants to develop her writing style and figure out new ways to connect to people using social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Vine and YouTube.
  • Second, she wants to dig into local culture and evaluate the pros and cons of living in downtown Winnipeg’s Exchange District. From festivals to food, museums to markets, she wants to explore the unique, homegrown businesses that are accessible to students living at RRC’s residence.

To arrange an interview with Kayla and to arrange tours of the residence, please call Conor Lloyd at 204.795.2864 or
