Michael Smith
I'm 22 years old and graduated from the University of Utah in May 2013 with a bachelor's degree in political science, with minors in history and international studies. I was a sports reporter for the school's newspaper, The Daily Utah Chronicle. I'm attending graduate school in the fall at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism and want to become a sports reporter for a newspaper.
