I am going to school to be a journalist. I work as a sports writer for a student publication and consider these steps to be small parts of the bigger picture. I am, as they say, getting my foot in the door. I want to be a sports journalist when I graduate. I believe it’s important to get more diversity in our media. As a woman, and as a Latina I feel I can bring a lot of diversity to a news room. I feel very strongly about entering a field that’s majority is made up of men. As a woman entering the field of sports journalism, I feel it is my job to be the representation in the media that minorities need. Representation has proved over the years to be a very influential factor in the viewers that digest our media. There are few women journalist on sports stations such as ESPN, and Sports Center, which is ideally where I would want to work. By going to school, and taking the steps to build my resume, I feel I am achieving my goals to be part of the bigger picture. That picture would be doing something I love, and making a difference while doing so.
