The Fizz

December 8, 2014  |  Inspiration

For the past few months I’ve been writing for a site called oreangefizz.net, a sports site that covers Syracuse football and basketball. When I came to Syracuse I had no interest in writing of any kind; I was a Broadcast and Digital Journalism major and I was gonna act as such. The university has given me plenty of chances to step outside of my comfort zone, and I couldn’t be happier that I chose to take this one. I’ve always known that my writing was at least decent, but through writing for the Fizz I’ve learned that I even enjoy doing it when I’m writing about something that I care about. I never got the opportunity to write in such ways before Syracuse. In short, I found it easier to write about Saturday’s game than the themes of Crime and Punishment. I love sports; not just the games themselves but the way that they bring people together and provide a relief from the everyday stresses of life, and I want to pursue a career in the field because nothing would be better than playing even the smallest role in that process.
