40 after 40: Anu Dawit-Kanna


Crime paid off for Anu Dawit-Kanna. Anu came to Douglas College to study Criminology in 1995.

“I am fascinated by the criminal mind. I always wanted to know why people do what they do. “

In the end, her studies here helped pave the way for her dream career.


After graduating from Douglas in 1997, Anu transferred to UBC for political science and
journalism. In 2005 she had the opportunity of a lifetime, landing a paid internship at CBC.

Since then Anu hasn’t looked back. As the morning reporter on CBC Radio One, she reported on Arts and Culture, human interest and feature stories.

Most recently, Anu has taken on the role of online producer for CBC.
