ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR,
When I first came to Monmouth in the Fall semester in 2017, I originally was a biology major. I thought I wanted to be involved with science and midway through the second semester, I knew that was not what I wanted to do. So I was back to square one, and I thought to myself, ‘okay so what’s next?’ While I was considering my options, my mom offered me the best advice I could receive at the time, “Do something that will make you happy.” When she told me this I knew exactly what my mindset was, I wanted to pursue a career in the world of sports journalism.
