I always pictured myself announcing the gymnastics at the Olympics.
In fact, I even joined the debate team in high school. I thought it would give me the opportunity to speak in front of a large audience. I knew I would need some practice, if I ever hoped to make my dreams come true. I studied hard in high school, and I made really good grades. I graduated with all A’s, except for a single B in Geometry. There is just something about rectangles and trapezoids that I don’t understand. I won an academic scholarship for debate, and I attended the State University. After I received my bachelor’s degree, I started working at an internship. Even though I hoped to work on gymnastic events, I wound up reporting the games for the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team. The Tampa Bay hockey team has a local station to broadcast the games, and they needed someone from the station to help with the broadcast. The company assigned me to work with the Tampa Bay hockey team. I was completely lost at first, but now I love it here. It’s three years later, and I still work for the Tampa Bay hockey team. I always wanted to broadcast gymnastics, but I have really enjoyed learning about ice hockey. When I first started working for the radio station, I didn’t even know the game lasted three quarters. Now I can name all of the professional teams, and I am on a first-name basis with most of the managers. Even though it’s not gymnastics, I’ve made a home working for the Tampa Bay hockey team.
