Christopher Araujo, Online EIC

My name is Christopher Araujo but I go by Chris. This is my first year doing journalism. I have been trying to graduate for a long time now so I think now is the perfect time to continue where I left off finishing school up. It has not been easy as I was still unsure of what I wanted to do in life. At the time when I spoke to a counselor and professor they kept asking how committed I was to the automotive program as I started to lose interest in it. I decided to stop going to school in general to focus on getting a job. When the counselor started listing all these careers I had zero interests in them. Then she asked me what I really liked to do or what is what interests me. I did have much interest outside of school so I really couldn't think of anything until I said to myself I do like sports a lot. I go to a lot of sporting events and watch them so why not get paid to talk about them or cover the events. I want to be able to travel around the world and cover all types of sports. It is a goal of mine to report on sports i like the most.
