Leah Balass studied journalism in Montréal. Upon graduation, she completed a 10-month internship/work program for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
<p> Thrown into the do-it-all role of a video-journalist, her mandate to capture local news stories across the province gave her the opportunity to direct, shoot and write video stories each day. She put together a small team consisting of people within different communities of Montréal who also shared her passion for storytelling. In her role as Director and Interviewer, she led, guided and supervised the team from pre to post production. Leah’s strength lies in unfolding the humanity in the subjects she interviews. Her passion for human connection enables her to expose the remarkably personal side of the characters she interviews, while her deep understanding and respect for diverse cultures allows her to naturally relate to people from all walks of life. This authentic connection shines through in the series and captures the interest of a wide audience.</p>
