My name is Nick Ashdown and I’m a freelance journalist in Istanbul, Turkey. I’m a recent graduate of Carleton University’s Master of Journalism program, and I also have a Bachelor and Master of Arts in Political Science. Besides Turkey, I’ve lived in Russia, Rwanda, and Ethiopia, and am very interested in travel and different cultures.

My professional blog can be found here.

  1. Mmmm… I can relate to a lot of this. I like what I see so far on your blog. I want to study international journalism abroad—hadn’t thought of Canada, but that is abroad for me. I’m from California. Have traveled some in Europe and Asia, but would love to visit Russia, Turkey and Rwanda, too… Best of luck to you!
