Jane-Finch.com wins award for media excellence

By David RosEditorAccording to Paul Nguyen, you don't need an awful lot of money in order to make an impact in your community, but what you do need is passion and dedication.Nguyen who founded Jane-Finch.com in 2004 in order to combat many the negative stereotypes placed upon the community by telling the story of Jane and Finch from a residents' perspective, could have never imagined how big it would truly become.On Oct. 4, the web site, which has become a go to portal for all things Jane and Finch, received an award of excellence for media at the 37th annual Heritage Toronto awards.“My intention was never to get recognition,” Nguyen said. “I never really had any big ambitions, and being a guy from Jane and Finch, I just worried about my daily routine, but once my friends got involved and it grew and we were able to be involved in situations where we never thought possible.”
