The Clipper

Joshua Amick, Staff Writer

What interests you about journalism?

I have always enjoyed writing, in particularly about sports. I joined EvCC to improve my writing ability and to pursue a career in sports journalism.

Where does The Clipper fit into your long-term goals?

The Clipper is a great way for me to practice my writing in newspapers and articles which will play a big part in future jobs.

From where do you get inspiration?

My inspiration comes from my brother, sister and mother. My brother has a vast knowledge for sports and has always pushed me to chase my dreams. My sister is my closest confidant who inspires me daily and my mom went back to school recently to get her Master's Degree while working full time which inspired me to go back to school. They are the reason for everything.

What is an issue or topic you are passionate about?

I am very passionate about sports and activism. I hate how news anchors say "shut up and dribble" or "politics has no place in sports" like they can't go hand in hand. These athletes are role models to people everywhere and regardless of what their occupation is, their opinions should be heard and respected.
