Why did you join the Black & White? I joined the Black and White because I really enjoy being a member of a team and seeing the rewards of your efforts. I like interviewing people and doing a lot of reporting, unearthing layer after layer of information.

Why are you well suited to write/edit for your section or to perform your job? I’ve been a big sports fan since I was young, mostly due to my brother, and have played a variety of sports over the years
