Originally from Michigan, I now reside in the sunshine state. I am a freshman at the University of Tampa majoring in sports journalism and sports have been an integral part of my life since my first steps. Up until third grade, sports were just a thing that I played. In third grade, I was introduced to the idea of storytelling. For my assignment I was supposed to write a one page story on anything I wanted. Instead, I wrote a chapter book about a baseball game. It was at that moment that I knew what I wanted to be when I grow up. Mixing sports and writing for me was a perfect match and I have been doing it ever since. Even though I now live in Florida, Michigan sports are where my heart is. The Detroit Lions, while tough to watch at times, are the only thing that gets me excited on Sunday’s. If you’re as passionate about the Lions as I am, sit back, relax, and take a seat.
