Personal Statement

As a highly motivated and results orientated individual attempting to crack the sports writing market, I have amassed a track record of providing not only an exemplary level of service, but also proven that I am more than capable of working in and contributing significantly to a large group. I have recently completed a 4-month internship where I was tasked with producing articles on a weekly basis. During this brief period, the articles that I posted amassed a total of 500,000 views and in the process, I learned valuable lessons about accountability and working well in a team. I am looking to secure and understanding of the multiple roles within the sports industry and ultimately land a job in the sports writing sector where I can bring a burning passion along with an immediate and strategic value to the already amazing team.
