Hailey is a sophomore at UNC studying sport administration and journalism. Born in Michigan and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, Hailey is passionate about the power of storytelling, particularly in athletics. She has worked on pursuing that passion through both video and written work inside and outside of the classroom.
My favorite athlete is former Michigan State basketball player, Cassius Winston. I was born and raised as a Spartan, so that might make me a little biased, but Cassius over his four years at MSU demonstrated tremendous strength and resilience, overcoming things that would normally cripple an individual. Instead, he used those hardships to help him become a better leader, a better teammate, and a better player on the court. His unwavering determination is something that I greatly admire in an athlete.
