An informal introduction

Hello everyone. I’m excited to start blogging. I created this blog for a journalism class earlier this year. Moving forward I would like to continue writing and blogging.

Here’s a little bit about me:

I’m a senior at Cal State Northridge majoring in broadcast journalism and minoring in Spanish journalism. Si hablo Español! Ideally I would love to get into sports broadcasting.

You may be wondering what sparked my interest in sports. To answer that question it’s what I grew up with. My parents being immigrants from Latin America inspired my love for sports. My mom is from Argentina and my dad is from Mexico, so growing up you can imagine how much futbol (yes futbol and not soccer) I’ve watched. My dad played soccer on local teams in San Diego and as a kid my mom would take me to watch his games on weekends. My mom played basketball competitively for eight years. She tried getting me to play but my three point shots didn’t cut it. I have six younger brothers, four which I was raised with, so growing up I was a bit of a tomboy. Having younger brothers contributed to my interest in sports. We played soccer, football, and baseball together.  As a kid I played softball so thats where my love for baseball comes from. Being raised in San Diego also helped grow my love for sports. I’m a proud Chargers and Padres fan. I don’t play any sports now but I enjoy going to games in Los Angeles or when I visit my hometown San Diego.

I’ll be updating this blog weekly. Thank you!
