My example of feature writing
Student learns to love her new city
(this is the headline)
Scared and excited at the same time.
This is how second year UCW student Karen Tankard describes her move to
Vancouver to study.
“I barely knew how to find Canada on a map, let alone Vancouver,” she said.
Now, she never wants to leave Vancouver. But, her family back home may
have other plans for her. They want her to return and run the family business.
