From 2006 to 2009, Lama worked as a video journalist for ‘A’ News in Windsor and London. Prior to that, Lama spent several years reporting for CTV in Sudbury and was an anchor/video journalist at CTV in Regina.

For Lama, being a journalist is a wonderful opportunity to constantly learn new things and a chance to share with others the stories of an increasingly diverse local community.
