I first tried my hand in the journalism world in the fifth grade at St. Juliana School. As young as it sounds, I knew from then on that I wanted to end up in the media world and this was seen throughout my high school and college years, as I wrote for student newspapers at both.
In my fourth year at Missouri, I began my time at the Athletic Media Relations office and that started what was the two most fun years I’ve arguably had. Up until those years, my sights had always been on being a sports reporter for a newspaper. Those two years introduced me to a totally new aspect of the media, one that made it feel like more of a family. The people I worked with there were so inspirational and helped me to move forward in the future.
Since I graduated from Missouri, I have worked at the Chicago Sun-Times, covering high school games, writing features, editing stories as well as inputting stats and scores into different programs. I’m excited to see what this world has in store for me whether it be in media relations, newspapers or any other field.
