So this may be considered late, but we’ll call it fashionable and then it will be acceptable.
My name is Rachel, and like most of you I also hope to graduate at the end of this semester. I have been majoring in Communications since first year (remember when it was still called Mass Communications?) and in my second year decided to add a second major of Film to that bill.
I grew up in Brampton, Ontario (about 45 minutes out of Toronto) and as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to pursue a career in broadcasting. Once in high school, I decided that sports broadcasting was the route for me – I find mainstream news media too repetitive, depressing and reinforces crazy dominant ideologies. Wow, I sound like a crazy person, but crazy people are awesome so I’m not afraid to be one.
My ideal career would be to travel around to other countries and cover hockey championships. I love sports (hockey being my absolute favourite) and definitely want to get paid to work with something I love. I also love to cook and eat but prefer to do that for friends and family instead of strangers in a restaurant. I’ve got quite the sense of humor (which sometimes gets me into trouble) and I try to find the comedic and bright side to any situtation (often this ends with me swearing like a sailor, but that’s still pretty damn funny).
I’m really looking forward to this class, and now that I’ve FINALLY been invited to work on the blog, I’m excited to read other people’s posts and for you guys to read mine.
