She has also contributed to the national, faith-based current affairs show CONTEXT WITH LORNA DUECK and the Cable Public Affairs Channel (CPAC).

Her passion for social justice stories has taken her to Iraq, Somalia, Bangladesh, Jordan, Haiti, Rwanda, Uganda, France, and England. In 2016, Thomas was one of four International Reporting Finalists for the AidEX Humanitarian & Development Journalism Award.

Molly loves languages and has studied university French, Spanish, German, Portuguese and knows a tiny bit of Arabic. Give her a few months in each country and she says she’d be chatting with locals in no time.
