3 years ago today, I started this blog. You can read that story below:
But this year I have a different story to tell. It’s about how far I’ve come, not just on this blog, but all around. If you’ve seen my About Page, you’d know that I was diagnosed with autism. When I was two, the doctors said I would never speak. You may be wondering, how did I get from there to here? Well, after trying constantly to find me help, my parents found NECC (The New England Center for Children). I got into their home program, and a year later, thanks to many great teachers, I was reading and talking. One teacher that I’d like to thank especially is Stacey Croeber, my teacher back then, and a close family friend now.
Over the years, it’s been hard for me to overcome my challenges, but when I push myself, I learned I could do anything. By the time I was 10, I had become an avid sports fan and reader. I was at the local library and found a book about starting a blog. I decided to take my sports knowledge online. That’s how this blog was started. Since then, my writing has gotten me some great experiences.
I’ve sat in the press box at a Bruins game and gotten that article about it onto Bruins.com. I’ve gotten a private tour of the Boston Herald. I’ve won a skiing trip through the Doug Flutie Foundation when they were impressed by my writing. I’ve even had my Baseball Bits on Felger & Mazz.
I’d like to thank all my viewers for the support. The main reason I do this is because this is my dream job, and I’m grateful to be supported in doing this. One thing that’s really been helpful is attending Play By Play Camps, a national Sports Broadcasting Camp. It’s been a nice 3 years, and I’m eager to keep going.
