Garth Burley is a first-year Journalism student here at UOW. I found it extremely interesting to hear about his aspirations while here at university. He aspires to be a sports writer/journalist, specifically covering cricket. His inspiration happened in high school, when he volunteered to work at a sports magazine; ‘Inside Cricket’.
“It was in 2011, just before the Cricket World Cup was about to start. I got to do some full profiles for teams like Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, and other writers were impressed. They gave me their number and said when I go and complete a degree, get back to us, there’ll be a job… the company went bankrupt last year, so it’s hopeless now. But I still aspire to do that because it’s just such an awesome job.”
