Shannon Correia is a journalist based in Cape Town, South Africa. I graduated in 2016 with Honours in Journalism from Wits University. Reference: Gus Silber I worked with Shannon as a mentor during her Journalism Honours final assignment at Witwatersrand University. She is a highly creative thinker with a curious streak and an intuitive grasp of contemporary issues and trends. This is matched by her flair for writing and her instinctive ability to find and convey meaning in a morass of information. Shannon is able to work diligently and with dedication under great pressure. She is open to feedback and learns quickly. I found her a pleasure to work with, and wish her well in her future career, wherever it may lead her!
