“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”


Hi i’m Gabriella, I’m a forth year Professional Communications student at Toronto Metropolitan University with a passion for sports media, hence the reason I did my capstone on the ” Don’t ask, don’t tell” rule in sports. I am very passionate about bringing a new outlook to the world of Sports and Sports media, encouraging everyone to think beyond the thin lines.
