From looking through my previous work, some might argue I’m primarily a sports writer. However, I’m here to prove those people wrong. The beauty of journalism and learning the craft of news writing is the reporter can report about any topic with polished interviewing skills and dedicated/in-depth research ability. I believe I possess those qualities allowing myself to write/report on any genre of news.
