If i could make a living doing whatever my heart desired, i would be an NFL Commentator. A lot of people think i’m joking when i say this, but i’m really not. Football has been my passion as long as i can remember.
I am the only female in my family. Siblings, and cousins are all males. I didn’t exactly have anyone to play barbies with me. It was either play ball or play by myself. I became highly passionate about the sport, Especially the NFL. As a kid i played running back in backyard football. i played up until my knee injury which has made me unable to participate in such activities.
After my injury i really started to pay attention to professional football. I started out just watching my local team. Then i changed my team due to the style of football the team would play. My two favorite teams to watch are the Saints and the Ravens due to their coaching techniques. Now i watch every team, every game, every season. I know most of the players and their stats from every team.
I can change the world. Maybe not in a way of a doctor or scientist would, but i could make people happy. A lot of people value their entertainment. Not only that, women really are not all the common in the NFL. It would be opening a door way for any women trying to come up in a man’s world.
I am working on getting my business degree. I’m hoping that’s enough just to get my foot in the door. From there it is just hoping that i meet the right people to get me where i need to be. If there is a dream and the person has the will power to follow it anything can happen, even becoming the next Jackie Brown, the best female sports commentator out there.
