How did you get involved with The Medium?

Why the Sports section, and not any other section?

VC: Sports have always been a large part of my life. I’m a member of the women’s varsity soccer team so it was only fitting that I write on what I know.

VC: Yes, I have. I’ve played soccer since the age of four and I used to play hockey for eight years.

If you didn’t have to sleep, how would you spend your extra time?

What shows are you into?
