I’m Denny Hackett, a junior at Boston University. I am majoring in journalism and want to become a sports reporter.
Ever since I was a kid I have been passionate about sports and being from Massachusetts that means I have been following all of the Boston teams for my entire life. Outside of the major Boston sports teams, I have played basketball my entire life and even had the opportunity to be an assistant coach for my brother’s eighth grade team.
As a journalist, I want to be able to use different forms of media to tell a story. Be it podcasts, filming video, taking pictures, and writing, I want to develop a background with all of the technology that I have at my disposal. In this day and age, it is not enough to just do one thing, in order to be competitive now you need to have a variety of skills. The two things that I love to do the most right now as a journalist are writing and taking pictures. After taking a visual journalism class in the fall semester, I have a better appreciation for photography and actually love to do it now.
The purpose of this blog is to be a portfolio of sorts for all of my classwork, as well as my own personal work that will mostly focus on sports but may also include content about other things.
