My passion for journalism started out when I was at Reading University and wrote for the student newspaper. I was then appointed its sports editor, where I got to cover Reading FC and London Irish RFC on a regular basis. From then on, I knew this was what I wanted to do for a living.
I love writing about and reporting on sports – from tennis to rugby to football. I recently obtained the NCTJ Diploma in Sports Journalism, which should stand me in good stead for the future. I’ve been on many work placements with local and national papers, and I have also had the pleasure of interviewing England rugby stars Alex Corbisiero, Jamie Gibson and Jonathan Joseph.
The aim of this blog is to take a look at what’s going in the sporting world during this jam-packed 2012.
I hope you enjoy reading it!
