My name is Kamryn Walker and I am a junior sports communication major at Clemson University. I am from Spartanburg, S.C., so Clemson is the perfect distance from home. I always knew I wanted to attend Clemson, as I was raised going to the football games since birth. During high school, I became a part of the student newspaper and reported on many sports stories. Being on the newspaper staff solidified the fact that I wanted to pursue sports journalism as my career. Sports are my family’s passion and I knew that I wanted it to be my profession. I have been interning at WSPA Channel 7 in the sports department in Spartanburg. This interning experience has opened my eyes to the reality of what it takes to be in sports reporting. I am so excited to be a part of the 2020 SJI class to learn how to be a stronger and more confident writer. I was awarded an internship as a production assistant intern at ESPN.
