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.
What’s the worst sports injury you’ve experienced?

What fictional place would you most like to visit?

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

What shows are you into?
