Coupled with my extreme passion for sports, mostly soccer, and the fact that I kept up with news and statistics, I decided to choose Journalism as my major in College. By then I was 18 years old and had fully understood the difference between a job and a career, and thus knew that if I truly wanted to be happy in life I had to do what I loved for a living. Work for a living in something that you wouldn´t mind doing for free and you won´t ever have to work another day for the rest of your life. And so, little by little, I began covering news stories about Social, Political, Technology and many others as if they were Sports news stories, because that is the style that I loved to read and that came naturally to me when writing. I believe that if you truly want the audience to care about mundane everyday news, they have to be tackled and covered in an entertaining way and always with the unrivaled passion of a sports team fan. I hope to one day revolutionize the way wrestling, film, entertainment and sports news are presented. To take the perspective of the average fan of each of these industries and meld it with the professionalism of how ESPN´s SportsCenter presents the most relevant moments, news, statistics and more. At 23 years of age, I am currently far from my goal, but every step I take towards it, however small it may be at times, drives me into furthering my career. Humble and Hungry. Always, Humble and Hungry.
