About Me

My name is Joseph Ellerbe. I am a junior at Wilson high. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. When I'm free I like to go places and purchase things. Once I graduate I plan on going to a university to study business. 

 What are you most thankful for?

There are so many things I am thankful for. The number one thing is God. Without him I wouldn't be here. Another is my family. I am extremely thankful for them. They are there to support and love me. I am also thankful for my friends who always seem to make me laugh.  I am thankful enough to be in good health and to have a place to stay. I am thankful for the experinces that have made me the person I am today. 

Is there too much emphasis put on winning in sports?

In my opinion there is not too much emphasis on winning. Winning is the most important part of sports. Most athletes get into sports because they want to compete to win. Some peopole think winning isn't everything but if you lose all the time the sport isn't as fun to you. Winning should be the top priority along with other things. I think it is a good amount of emphasis is put on winning.

Do female athletes have it more difficult then men?

       I feel it is equally difficult for both men and women in sports skill wise. Although men are respected more in sports. Women do not get the same amount of respect in sports. Some people feel as if they are not as skilled as the men making people talk bad about women. People will aslo talk about how softball fields are smaller and in basketball the ball is smaller but I still think it is a challenge. I feel as if they should be treated the same because all athletes are equal.  

A Place That Holds Meaning

A place that holds a special meaning to me is my great grandmothers house. I use to go there a lot as a young child for different reasons. I enjoyed spending that time with my family. When I go there I have so much nostalgia. When I was growing up I would go there with my dad sometimes in the afternoon and me and my cousins would play and joke. I remember conversations I use to have with my aunts and uncles. Now I rarely go to that house but when I do go I enjoy myself. Her house will always be special to me. 

My biggest influence

A lot of things have influence me. Some shows influence me and some celebrities influence me. My biggest influence would be my older cousins. Since I been little I been trying to be like them. From my vocabulary to the way I act most of it is because of them. I've always tried to emulate them. They've been around since before I can remember. Growing up they showed me a lot about life. Now that I'm older I think they can see their younger selves in me. The're adults now and I barely see them but I still view them the same. They still influence me to this day. 

My Passion

As a kid I used to want to play sports but I grew out of that in middle school. I saw what my relatives did while working at businesses and I wanted to learn about it. So that became my passion to learn about business aspects of life. So now I go to school and plan to fulfill my passion to learn about the aspects of business.

Media in Sports

Media is important in sports because without media news can't get out, the game is not as enjoyable, and we would not hear the players opinions on things. Media coverage tells us all about the transactions and decisions teams make. Media also makes the game more watchable. The commentators, sideline reporters. and analyst all are the voices we hear while watching events. Without them the events are quiet or just chatter from the players. Players speak to us as fans through the media whether it is a interview or a social media post. Sports media helps us in so many ways as fans connect to the players and the sport.
