I am a student at Arizona State University. I am majoring in Journalism and Mass Communications. I hope to pursue a career in sports journalism. I was born and raised in Arizona and graduated from Hamilton High School. I have been a sports fan since I was nine years old and all of my favorite teams are all of the Arizona teams.
