Recently, some people have asked me why I want to go into the sports journalism business. What do I tell them?
The truth is, I am a huge sports fan. From the day I could watch television, I have been infatuated with sports, most notably basketball. I’ve always enjoyed watching a hard fought football game or a back and forth basketball game. My love for sports is the foundation for why I am interested in sports journalism.
However, even though my love for sports is the basis of my interest, my love for writing solidified my desire to pursue a career in sports journalism. I have always enjoyed writing–whether it be poetry, comedic skits, or sports–I’ve always enjoyed writing.
During the middle of my 7th grade year, I knew I wanted to become a sports journalist. At the outset, I wanted to have a concentration on broadcasting. However, as I progressed into high school, my writing began to grow. This gave me confidence, as I knew I could have great success particularly in online, magazine, or print journalism.
As I progress through college, and try to break into the industry, this site will be used to showcase my articles for potential employers. I will also have my contact information on the site. Thanks, and welcome to my site.
