Hello, Duke fans! My name is Sarah. I am currently a rising seventh grader.
I got my start in blogging with my school on the WordPress Education Platform, EduBlogs. I blogged a little bit about various topics in fourth grade, as my fourth-grade teacher, Mr. Mason, helped me to start out.
Unfortunately, in fifth grade, I was unable to blog as our blogs were used for other purposes.
I’ve always loved writing, especially reporting on sports. Sports give me a reprieve from what is often very heavy worldwide news. I got my passion for Duke Basketball, Football, etc. from my dad (sorry, Mom, but you went to UNC). When I was four years old, I awoke around midnight to find my father with his arm in the air, whispering, “It didn’t go in! It didn’t go in!!!!” He was referring to this:
There, my love for Duke Basketball was born. I still remember this season:
Not to mention being so confused when my dad told me that Jabari Parker wasn’t coming back. But even better was this season:
Oh, how I loved that year. Even at the age of 9, I could name every jersey number on the past two Duke teams, plus legends such as Christian Laettner, Jason Williams, Bobby Hurley, Kyrie Irving, etc.
It’s only gotten better from here! I now have my own domain and blog which I plan to use from now on. Enjoy your reading! Bleed Blue!
