The Clipper

Taras McCurdie

Taras McCurdie, Staff Writer

What interests you about journalism?

Being able to write about whatever you want. The pay may not be that good starting out. But when you have the chance to go to new places and meet new people, you get paid with knowledge, which is something that paper money will never buy you.

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

The Clipper will help me build my portfolio and give me a real life experience of what being a journalist would be like working for a newspaper company. My goal is to be a sports reporter or broadcaster for ESPN.

What is an issue or topic you are passionate about?

I am passionate about sports. I have played and watched multiple sports over the course of my life. And, by being a sports reporter or broadcaster, having the chance to interview athletes and getting access to the games and traveling with the team would never feel like work.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Maintaining a high GPA while having the chance to play collegiate soccer.
