The Road to 500

As a 17-year-old in High School, one time my Uncle Joe asked me what I wanted to do after I graduated. I told him that I wanted to be a sports journalist for women’s soccer, but that I didn’t know how to do it. 

For the past five years I have pursued this dream of sports journalism and am constantly blown away at the opportunities that come my way.

Although I stopped playing soccer for 10 years as a Senior in High School, I became fascinated with watching women's soccer and wanted to document the game. 

While the world looks to men to dominate in this sport, I always loved seeing the strength of such powerful women be displayed on and off the pitch.

In growing as a writer, I previously managed smaller blogs and as of January 2019, have re-branded myself to create this professional platform of what is now WKB.

For the past five years I've been pursuing this dream and am so grateful for the support of those who believe in my work, the players that trust me with their stories, and the opportunity to grow in what I love. 

This year, my goal is to get to 500 email subscribers to join me in this journey. Whether you're a soccer fanatic or even if you're not that interested in women's soccer but are willing to come on this journey with me, your support would be so appreciated.

I've included some personal pieces below that go more in depth about where I've come from and how I'm excited to grow with WKB.
