Hello! My name is Mikey McGuire and I’m a senior in high school. I plan to go to college and study journalism to pursue my dream career in motorsport journalism.
I’ve wanted to be a journalist for a while now, originally I wanted to go into the field to make documentaries, but over the past year or so my ambitions have changed slightly.
I started watching Formula One in the middle of the 2019 season after watching the Netflix documentary about the sport, “Drive to Survive.” The first race I tuned in for was the 2019 Canadian Grand Prix and after that banger of a race, I was hooked. Something about the beautiful circuit and the drama on the track between Seb and Lewis had me absolutely enthralled.
To understand more about the sport, I started watching different F1 related channels on Youtube and reading from F1 publications like “The Race” and “Autosport”. I immediately knew that this was the field I wanted to go into and becoming a motorsport journalist has been my goal ever since.
Another passion of mine is music and writing about it, I plan to write reviews on different albums and write on music, in general, every once in a while.
I’ve been writing for my school’s newspaper this school year and have been the online editor for the website associated with the paper. I started this blog as a way to hone my skills as a writer and reporter as well as grow my skills maintaining a webpage. This blog is also a great way for me to archive and builds a portfolio of work I can use to show potential employers.
I hope you enjoy the blog and don’t be afraid to let me know what you think of the page using the contacts on the contact page.
