From Architect to Journalist

Ximena González’s journey in becoming a journalist and staying true to herself

When Ximena González spent most of her early 20s dedicated to architecture, she never imagined she’d become a journalist.

Born and raised in Nayarit, a state on the west coast of Mexico, González, 38, moved to Calgary in 2010 to pursue a master’s degree in environmental design.

However, after graduating, she struggled to find jobs in her industry due to her lack of Canadian work experience.
