I love journalism because through it, I can learn a little bit of everything. With this article, I gained the opportunity to learn more about sports.
- I conducted a twelve minute interview with varsity basketball player and Jefferson senior Savannah Wilson to learn more about her story as an accomplished basketball player.
- Reflecting on this article written two years ago, I’m proud to see how my writing has improved since then. Most of the quotes I use in this article describes what she does, which I could have simply paraphrased instead of quoting. If I were to revisit this article, I would have used quotes that better describe how she was feeling in place of the quotes that I currently use.
Writing this article, I immersed myself in sports vernacular—a language opaque with jargon with which my unathletic-self was unfamiliar. This article helped me become much more comfortable with writing more sports articles.
