As an aspiring journalist at Ball State University, I hopped on board with Bleacher Report’s winter/spring 2012-2013 writing internship. As an intern, I wrote between three and six articles per week. I was fortunate enough to have been awarded Intern of the Week, as well. As my internship drew to a close, I was promoted to a Featured Columnist, where I wrote a weekly column on the St. Louis Cardinals. I was also given the opportunity to join Bleacher Report’s Breaking News Team.
Looking back, my time spent with Bleacher Report was invaluable. The people I was fortunate enough to have met, the contacts I made, the growth and the overall experience I gained helped jumpstart my writing career.
