When you ask a student athlete what they are majoring in, common responses include, Exercise Science, Sports Management, Nutrition, Health Sciences, and Criminal Justice.

So you can imagine the surprise when I answer with “Photojournalism”.

I am a high jumper for Central Michigan University who has loved photography from the moment  I started taking pictures. Whenever I tell people that my major is Photojournalism, I get responses like a surprised “Oh!” or “That’s interesting!” or “What do you plan to do with that?”.

My usual response is that I want to work for a newspaper or a magazine.

While my teammates who major in Exercise Science look at people for injuries, I look at people for stories.

Right now I am in JRN 340 Intro to Digital Journalism, and I plan to use this blog to display the work I do in this class.
