I have always had a passion for sports, and during my time at UF, I developed a passion for sports writing. Iíve been a sports writer for the Independent Florida Alligator for a little more than a year. Iíve covered UF soccer, tennis and cross country in that time. Iíve also interned for the Florida Times-Union/ for the past two summers, and Iím currently blogging for Check out Swamp Scoop for more on my blog.

What Iíve found through my experiences so far is that I want to pursue a career in a journalism or media-related field. Through this course (MMC 3260 Communication on the Internet) and my online journalism internships, I have developed a desire for online journalism as well. I have learned a lot about journalism and what it takes to succeed in this field, and I think Iím ready to take on the challenge by pursuing a media career.
