In 2009, I was selected by the International Olympic Committee to work at the 2010 Winter Paralympic Games at Whistler in Vancouver. The amazing people I met from all over the world, my job at the Games, and the beautiful Vancouver area that I temporarily called home each changed my life in positive ways. When the time came to apply for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, I had to go for it! I underwent an intense year-long interview process similar to Vancouver. Thankfully, my efforts were worth it – I was selected to work as a flash reporter for the Olympics covering the sport of hockey. I look forward to joining the others on the news team in Sochi. I am growing increasingly excited now that it is less than 90 days until I leave! Each host country does things differently, so I anticipate this will be a distinct experience from 2010. I hope to keep you updated on my journey through my blog.
