While completing my degree at Acadia University, I had the opportunity to work as Sports Editor for the school’s student newspaper, The Athenaeum. I gained in-depth experience producing news articles covering many sports-related issues. As Sports Editor, I contributed weekly articles to the section, collaborated with staff to generate story ideas, assisted reporters in writing and improving their work, and was responsible for the lay-out (InDesign) and final editing of the weekly sports section. The position gave me the opportunity to refine my writing skills in an academic setting. I wrote about all things sport and lifestyle; from local running trails and football headlines, to fundraising initiatives and campus traditions. The following is a compilation of articles I wrote, edited, and laid out while working for the publication.
