Manjula Selvarajah has had a remarkable career to date, and through it all, she has maintained an attitude of giving back to the community.
An engineer by trade and a former tech startup executive, she went on to pursue journalism, currently in the role of associate producer at CBC Toronto. Manjula is also a regular writer at TamilCulture.com, and was recognized by our readers and editors as one of 'Toronto's Most Influential Tamils' in 2012.
Manjula was recognized with this year's award for most outstanding professional by the Canadian Tamil Chamber of Commerce (CTCC) at their 19th annual awards ceremony held on Saturday.
She tells the CBC:
"Here, business people have chosen to give an award to a journalist, so they have collectively decided that a journalist helps in some way further the cause of their community," she said. "Specifically, to receive [the award] from the Tamil community, too — it's such an honour. I'm really grateful."Congratulations on your win Manjula!
