Anterior Cruciate Ligaments
By Alexis Jenkins
Alexis Jenkins definitely is very active from the start. Sports have always been her passion; growing up, you could always catch her outside at the softball field playing with her high school, tournament team, or family. This all was until she had an almost career-ending injury occur not just once but twice. Luckily, she could continue to play two years of college softball, but she always wondered why tearing your ACL, also known as your Anterior Cruciate Ligament, was such a big deal. Now years later, she is a Senior here at Millersville studying Sports Journalism. After graduation, she plans to work her way into the ESPN world to eventually become an ESPN Broadcast Journalist.
I’m Abbie, and I’m a Writing Studies major with a minor in Linguistics. I am a writer of all varieties of creative fiction, from flash fiction to prose poetry. I enjoy experimenting with different forms and genres, as well as delving into character development and motivations. Though I enjoy writing short pieces, my aim is to publish a full-length novel in the Young Adult genre. After Millersville, I plan to further pursue my passions and go on to graduate school for an MFA in Creative Writing. When I am not writing, I am also an avid reader and traveler. I studied abroad through Millersville’s Global Education and ever since I have had a love of seeing new places and meeting new people.
